Large format (104 x 72 cm or 40.9" x 28.3") offset print poster of the red silhouette of Lenin towering over an industrial skyline, pointing the army of his minions, also unsurprisingly presented as blood-red silhouettes, in a direction where they can rob, maim, rape, burn and execute people on the spot in the name of the happy future of the people.
Printed on matte poster paper in the Soviet Ukraine, city of Kharkhiv. Circulation 50,000 copies, price - 10 kopeks.

The poster is in fair to good condition. There are a number of creases, small rips and general wear along the edges. Most of the rips are reinforced and held together with paper tape on the reverse. Please note that the poster will be safely shipped rolled in a hard tube box.

The poster, issued in 1967, was obviously created to mark the 50th anniversary of the Bolshevik coup-d'état which they proudly called the Great October Socialist Revolution. And the artwork cannot help but convey the bloody monstrous nature of the terror of that event and the party which made it real. Coincidentally, the last name of the artist is "Strakhov", which stems from the word "strakh" (fear). A facsimile of Lenin's full signature under the graphics appears to emphasize his leadership and ownership of the Red Terror.
This poster is a great reminder of what socialism truly is.
