A Graphic Look at the Soviet Hard Sell  by Christine Temin - "When Red Saw Green: Soviet Advertising and Film Posters of the Twenties  is a fascinating show at the Mass College of Art's Huntington Gallery. Organized by Jim Lapides, owner of the International Poster Gallery on Newbury Street, the exhibition focuses on the New Economic Policy of the 1920s, when the economy was a disaster and the Bolsheviks were forced to allow some private enterprise... The Mass Art show is a fine addition to a short list [of recent shows on Soviet design in the Boston area.] It's also a must for anyone interested in the history of conveying messages through pictures...These masterpieces of 20th century design were intended to be used and tossed. Instead, they've ended up...on museum walls."

Posters on Parade by Jim Waltzer - "Russian posters of WWII and the Bolshevik Revolution (1917 - 1921) are noteworthy for their powerful graphic design and savvy propaganda - and as relative bargains. 'We have museum quality pieces going for under $1,000,' says Jim Lapides, whose Boston-based International Poster Gallery will begin a six week Soviet exhibition at the end of February...The International Poster Gallery show, War and Revolution, will combine American World War I posters with those of the Boshevik period and its aftermath."

"The Art of Propaganda" by Cate McQuaid - "Buy War Bonds. Uncle Sam Wants You. Before the advent of television, posters played a large part in rallying the citizenry in times of crisis. The same was true in the Soviet Union, where citizens were spurred to action as an army of workers, putting their noses to the grindstone for the state. 'Revolution by Design', now up at the International Poster Gallery, shows off some of the work of the USSR's best artists and graphic designers."

The 18 posters are from the collection of Jim Lapides, owner of the International Poster Gallery of Boston. Exhibitions here always allure with bold images and color, and the present one is no exception."
