Title: Window-Shopping through the Iron Curtain
Authors: David Hlynsky
Publisher: Thames & Hudson
Year: 2015
ISBN: 9780500252116
Language: English

Description:
Communist shop windows may long have passed from history into irony, but their distinctive style, handmade charm and implicit critique of modern commercial culture have won them a new generation of fans.
Window-Shopping is a wonderfully deadpan celebration of a unique commercial aesthetic that flourished under the crumbling totalitarian Communist regimes of 20th-century Europe.
More than 170 images, mainly shop window displays, shot by artist David Hlynsky during the final years of the collapsing Soviet empire, using a Hasselblad camera to capture the slow, undramatic moments of daily life on the streets.
