Iron Curtain Graphics. Eastern European Design Created without Computers
Atelierul de grafică has the pleasure of inviting you Friday, 1st May, 7 pm at Café Verona - Carturesti, to the launch of the Iron Curtain Graphics. Eastern European Design Created Without Computers by Carla Duschka and Ciprian Isac and published by Gestalten Berlin.
The launch will be accompanied by the authors, the writers Angelo Mitchievici & Caterina Preda and the contributor Mihai Tudoroiu.

The Album is the result of a collaboration between the German publisher Gestalten and Atelierul de Grafică. It developed out of the first two Graphics Without Computers books.

What it is?
It is a special, unique album containing much previously unpublished material. In contrast to the Romanian books, Gestalten’s preference was for a larger page format and a focus on the images, with Atelierul de grafică choosing a different chapter structure. The resulting book highlights a paradoxical aspect of communication behind the Iron Curtain: constrained by strict rules and censorship, and without the technical advantages of today, the professional or “designated” graphic designers of the day took refuge in an array of highly ingenious compositional and chromatic solutions.
