kino glaz

1924 poster for the Kino Glaz documentary by renowned Soviet film maker Dziga Vertov. Kino Glaz, meaning ‘cinema eye’ is based on Vertov’s theory that the camera is an instrument much the same as the human eye. His films featured no actors or scripts but chose to focus on everyday life in the Soviet Union.

The poster was designed by seminal graphic artist Alexander Rodchenko and is considered to be one of the finest examples of graphic design from the early 20th century.
