Cold War modern : design 1945-1970 by Victoria and Albert Museum( Book )

15 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 694 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Modern life after 1945 seemed to promise both utopia and catastrophe. Both could, it seemed, be achieved at the 'push of a button'. Published to accompany a major V & A exhibition, 'Cold War Modern: Design 1945-1970', this book explores how the politics of the Cold War shaped architecture and design. Reassessing 'classic' designs and introducing many little-known objects."--Jacket
Communicate : independent British graphic design since the sixties( Book )

10 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 639 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the 1960s youth culture and pop music became an important influence on British design. Key examples include the pop art collages of artists like Richard Hamilton and the psychedelic, punk, and new wave aesthetics of groups like Roxy Music and Pink Floyd. Images and illustrations were used in balance with letterforms to convey design concepts and ideas. The influence of popular culture is still relevant to contemporary British designers. Communicate focuses on the smaller independent design studios and teams that are credited with producing the most creative and innovative design over the past four decades and explores how and why British design has developed during this period."--Jacket

This text considers the effects of state socialism on seemingly mundane aspects of life.

It explores a number of pressing themes including the imagery of peace and revolution; 'samizdat' and underground poster art in the Eastern Bloc; and the Cold War film poster. Coming from over fifteen countries, the posters featured in this book have been selected to demonstrate the wide international reach of the conflict. It features over seventy artists and poster designers of the period including Pablo Picasso, Peter-Paul Piech, Grapus Design Collective, Peter Kennard and the Cuban Poster School."--Jacket

12 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Warsaw by David Crowley( Book )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Warsaw has an unenviable reputation in the minds of many: often invoked as the epitome of the brutal environment produced by Soviet aesthetics and planning, its name conjures up a grey, faceless world of tower blocks and Orwellian governmental buildings; its image-- perhaps more so than that of any other city in the former Soviet block-- inextricably tied to the fate of the Communist system. Warsaw appears to have been locked in the vice of history-- crushed by one totalitarian system, remade by another, only now being liberated by market forces

Satisfaction : sztuka konsumpcyjna w socjalistycznej Polsce lat 7 = Satisfaction : consumption art from the communist Poland of the 1970s( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in Polish and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Satisfaction includes films related to the social and economic context of the 1970s in socialist Poland. Specifically, the films relate to the then First Secretary of the Polish Socialist Party Edward Gierek's policy of seducing and corrupting the public with a vision of "socialist consumerism." Meanwhile, the slight tilt of the socialist system toward the Western lifestyle spawned phenomena such as "soc-pop-culture" or "red bourgeoisie."
