Join Alexander Tochilovsky, Curator of the Herb Lubalin Study Center of Design and Typography, for an exploration of the Cyrillic hand-lettering in The Utopian Avant-Garde: Soviet Film Posters of the 1920s. Learn how these varied letterforms were incorporated into the dynamic posters, helping these compositions captivate audiences over 100 years later.
