ALCOHOL - Soviet Anti-Alcohol Posters

$32.50

Soviet propaganda against the demon drink: the latest in Fuel’s Russian pop culture series
From the acclaimed authors of the Russian Criminal Tattoo Encyclopaedias and Soviet Space Dogs comes Alcohol, a glorious and exhaustive collection of previously unpublished Soviet anti-alcohol posters. The book includes examples from the 1960s through to the 1980s, but focuses on posters produced during Mikhail Gorbachev’s campaign initiated in 1985. These posters attempted to sober up Soviet citizens by forcing them to confront the issues associated with excessive alcohol consumption. This government-led urgency allowed the poster designers to present the anti-alcohol message in the most graphic terms: they depicted drunks literally trapped inside the bottle or being strangled by “the green snake.” Their protagonists are paralytic freeloaders and shirkers who always neglect their families, drive under the influence, produce substandard work, are smashed when pregnant and present a constant danger to fellow citizens. A two-part essay by renowned cultural historian Alexei Plutser-Sarno attempts to explain, from a Russian perspective, the reasons behind this phenomenon.

REMOTE PLACES TO STAY

$60.00

A beautiful guide to the world's most remote, peaceful and luxurious hotels, from all corners of the earth.
'Above all, Remote Places to Stay is all about humans and the sheer variety of lifestyles that are possible, as through its evocative photography and well-written texts, we are able to uncover small, hidden corners of the world where life flows in a different tempo altogether.' (Yatzer.com)

In a time of distraction and fragmentation, people need to put some distance between themselves and the modern-day world in order to get back to the roots of their essence. Remote Places to Stay offers the intrepid, dissatisfied soul with 22 places away from this world, where you can 'switch off' completely. Many of these places are hard to get to, some only by foot, others only by train, boat or bush planes. But all of them have one factor in common: they offer you space for yourself. From the luxurious to the basic, from the Arctic north to desert landscapes in Africa, from an elegant refuge in the Himalayas to an abandoned village in Italy leave your daily life behind you, at least for a while.
