METAXAS RE-BRANDED (Posters of the 4th of August State) By Andreas Markessinis
Paperback: List Price: $35.72 $30.36 | You Save: 15%

This book is an unprecedented experiment in graphic design. It contains 50 posters that could have existed during the Metaxas dictatorship in Greece (1936-1941), a quasi-fascist regime bynamed... More > ‘the 4th of August State’. These banners, all of them produced in modern times, have been intentionally designed to resemble the political propaganda posters that were infamously popular in the turbulent 1930s in Europe and Greece. Although fabricated, these posters have been handcrafted carefully in order to be as historically accurate as possible. From a conceptual point of view, they are historically truthful because most of the messages and slogans used have been picked from propaganda material from the Metaxas years. From an aesthetical perspective, the posters use pictures, graphics, fonts and colors actually used by the 4th of August state. The result is a stunning book with an enjoyable plethora of incredibly realistic posters which are both beautiful and powerful.< Less

Metaxas Jugend: A picture album of the Greek Fascist Youth Organization EON (Εθνική Οργάνωση... More > Νεολαίας) features over 400 pictures of the Greek fascist equivalent to the German Hitlerjugend. These pictures, some of them very rare, provide a straight and completely visual insight into a massive youth organization that reached 1,250,000 members - by 1941 over one sixth of the entire Greek population wore the dark blue uniform of the EON. This book is structured around 14 different aspects of the organization, from military training to sports and leisure, and vividly shows how EON members were drowned into the new collective life of the Metaxas regime, from their participation in nationalist parades to their role in the Greek-Italian war in the winter of 1940-41. The book gives an illustrated, pictures-only account of one of the most obscure yet most fascinating organizations in interwar Europe. For more information and pictures of the book visit< Less
