Illustrations to the third volume of “History of the 20th Century through the Eyes of “The Crocodile” Magazine”.
“History of the 20th Century through the Eyes of “The Crocodile” Magazine” is a 12-volume edition that is based on caricatures and sketches from the main Soviet satirical magazine “The Crocodile" (1922-1992). The goal of this edition is not only to show the long forgotten comic images and essays, but also to initiate a serious discussion about the century we grew in and the events that changed the world.
Each book has a unique structure. In this particular book the reality, presented in the magazine, is structured as a new world map – the way it would look seen through eyes of the CROKODILE Magazine in the 60s and 70s. There are five non-existent continents – USSR, Pentagon, NATO, Israel and Third World, surrounded by the Black Sea of human faults and social stigma.
