Chinese Propaganda Poster:
Make Your Own Things

Make your own things 1964
zi ji de shi zi ji zuo

One of the posters in my collection. The faces of these girls are so wonderfully painted and the red color still so vivid.

I think of the book Red Scarf Girl (a must read) when I look at this. I can picture Jiang Ji-Li mending her shoes with her friend An Yi.

thought it'd be fun to share a poster every so often... more to come...
