Alexander Rodchenko, Varvara Stepanova. URSS en construcción, nº 4, 1938

“In the issue they [Rodchenko and Stepanova] designed on the Election of the Supreme Soviet, which described the event, particularly the election of Stalin, as a free choice of the people, the dissimilarity between the representation of a purported free election and the control the party exercised over its outcome was increased by the photographs of roses that bedecked some of the layouts, particularly the spread featuring a portrait of Stalin looking off into the distance along side an effusive paean to him by the poet Victor Gusev that ended with the lines: The million voices blend, naming their first candidate Stalin, leader, friend.”
