Red Farm Propaganda

Red Farm Propaganda

One of our favorite posts to-date was the roundup of vintage WWII Victory Garden posters. Today we decided to dive into some farm propaganda from a different side of the political spectrum. This art comes from around the world, anywhere Communist ideology found purchase. Some of it is beautiful, some epic, and some a bit baffling. It’s Friday, our favorite day to look at pretty things.

Enjoy.
