Description
[Literate, Teach the Illiterate] (in Nenets language), a Nenets Language poster by Timofei Ksenofontov (1912-1980?). Published by OGIZ-IZOGIZ, Moscow - Leningrad, 1932. 70.5 x 51.5 cm.

Nenets, the indigenous people of Arctic Siberia, had no literary language until 1932, when a Latin-based alphabet was established. With it came the first spelling book, Jadei Wada [New World] (held by the Nenets in the poster), soon to be followed by additional textbooks, political writings translated from Russian, and propaganda posters. All were ordered by the Scientific Research Association of the Institute of the Peoples of the North, including the poster being offered. Considering that there were only 17,000 Nenets at the time, and that Nenets were nomadic deer herders and hunters, poster runs were probably very low.

This interesting poster must be one of the first produced by the then-20-years-old Timofei Konstantinov. Several of Konstantinov's WWII-era posters published in Leningrad during the Siege aveappeared in our previous auctions.

Search extension words: Russian poster, Soviet poster.
