Postcards From The Russian Revolution

Postcards From The Russian Revolution is part of a series from the Bodleian Library, with an introduction by professor Andrew Roberts. He reveals the postcard as the pre-radio, pre-television equivalent of a news bulletin from abroad, also used as a profound artistic medium as well as projecting powerful political propaganda. At their best, they can recreate the immediacy, excitement and emotion of great historical events, which is certainly what this collection achieves for the 1905, the Kerensky and the Bolshevik Revolutions in Russia.
