Type Tuesday: Rodchenko & Mayakovsky

Thanks, Derek, for this link recommendation. "Rodchenko tells about his collaboration with the poet Mayakovsky on the design of advertising campaigns for several state companies flourishing under the era of the New Economic Policy, which allowed free enterprise, capitalist competition and private patrons from 1921 to 1928, date of the implementation of the First Five Year Plan. … 'We really were the vanguard of revolutionary art, and each of us in our own field, led the battle for the new Soviet art, even by being against art.'"
