Про Это

Oh my, I love this image. These are photostats of a design by the always amazing Alexander Rodchenko. This is actually, originally, the cover design for a book of poetry by Vladimir Mayakovski. For This or About This, as I understand it, is the translation into English. The woman there is Mayakovski's sweetheart, Lilya Brik, to whom the poem is written. I've seen this great design since appropriated by various concerns but for me and my friends, it was the standard for our band in 1985, Pro Eto.
