The Man with the Movie Camera

This 1929 Russian Constructivist movie poster "The Man with the Movie Camera" is very interesting. This poster is a lithograph. Lithography is a method of printing from a plane surface (such as a smooth stone or metal plate) on which the image to be printed is ink-receptive and the blank area ink-repellent; the ink will only stick to the design that will be printed. The dizzying effect is created through a one-point perspective and the vortex of type! Your eyes are drawn right through the middle, which fascinates me. I also enjoy all the bright colors of the surrounding buildings along with the black and white in the background and in the woman.
