A collection of Chinese propaganda posters from the collection of Michael Wolf (published by Taschen) are 'unique and marvellous'. They reflect the Mao era in Chinese history.

I can't comment on history or regimes or the celebration of sixty years of The Party but the art and the heroics are a knockout.
Shown is a lighthearted theme: Rejoicing at the plentiful harvest. On sheaf of rice: The People's Commune is good. Artists Gupin and Chen Huiguan; Liaoning Art Publishing House.
