Black arrow pointing downward to red square against a red and white background.

All the characteristics of constructivism, with a nod to its precursor cubism, are in evidence in this Soviet poster for a state-operated cigarette factory. The text, in strong typography on red background, says: ""In quality there's strength; demand our cigarettes everywhere."" The jaw-breaking name on the bottom is one of the countless acronyms produced by government bureaucrats; unraveled, it should read ""The Don Basin National Tobacco Factory"" of Rostov, a major town on the Don River.
