Old Propaganda Poster
Arm Yourself with Some Prop Art
Whether you agree with its sentiments or not, there's no denying the visual aesthetic of Communist propaganda art. Vietnam's is particularly attractive, with a strong feminine touch coming through in many of the designs. Reproductions are sold in many venues in the Old Quarter including shops like Old Propaganda Posters, a prosaically named outlet on Hang Bac Street.
