Portfolio: The Anti-Religious Alphabet

From a portfolio of 27 prints.

This young and cheerful boy, dressed in a Soviet military costume and carrying a school blackboard, plays the protagonist of The Anti-Religious Alphabet. Although he only appears in five of the posters, he serves as both role model for and link between readers and the Soviet anti-religious campaign.
