Budapest, 1945. Magyar Kommunista Párt, Szociáldemokrata Párt és a Szabad Szakszervezetek. [Hungarian Communist Party, the Social Democratic Party and the Free Trade Unions.] VII. 136 p. Propaganda photos. First Edition.
Publishing paperback. In original photographically illustrated paper. It’s yellow, printed on bad paper. In good condition, minor fault.
Showing the Soviet-styled celebration of May Day, few weeks after the liberation of Hungary by the Soviet forces.
Artistically this book employs many elements common to the great Soviet photo books of the 1930s and is possibly the first postwar expression of that vision. Róbert Byssz is credited with fashioning the book design and assembly of numerous images from Hungarian photojournalists and film stills.
One of the most important photobooks of 20th century Hungary.
