Repurposed posters

The Commissariat of Enlightenment by Ken Kalfus.
Design by Elizabeth Ackerman.

Interestingly, Elizabeth Ackerman, in her credit, calls to attention her source material and inspiration for this particular cover: "based on a poster by Nikolai Prusakov, 1929." The poster in question is for a German film called The Man of Fire, and you can find it here. I thank her for introducing me to his work. I love all the white space and the positioning of the elements at opposing corners.
