Cogs and Wheels: The material culture of revolutionary China

March 19, 2007

Chinese ‘Clip Art’ and other exciting stuff

Oldtasty has uploaded some wonderful pics of CultRev era mastheads, ‘clipart‘, and record sleevesto his Flickr album.  Certainly haven’t seen examples of revolutionary mastheads and so-called clipart before.  He’s also got some photos of Panjiyuan Market in Beijing too, which show stalls selling CultRev stuff.  Okay, I admit, some of this looks genuine (the paper items?), so perhaps I have been a bit hasty to point the finger in my previous couple of posts – the real stuff is out there if you know where to find it, perhaps?

Link to album via WFMU and the merguez frites blog (the writer of which appears to share my doubts about some of this material).
