NAGISHKIN, D. The Hour of Reckoning Is Near!, 1942

Blizok chas rasplaty! [The Hour of Reckoning Is Near!], a poster by Dmitry Nagishkin (1909 -1961). OGIZ-Dalgiz, 1942, 57 x 87.5 cm.

Nagioshkin's brief online biography describes him as a newspaper artist and journalist who before WWII worked in Chita and later in Khabarovsk. During WWII Nagishkin worked for a military newspaper — apparently, still in the Soviet Far East, as this poster was produced in 1942 in Khabarovsk. It appears that after the war he concentrated primarily on journalism and administration, with a considerable success — eventually, he transferred to Moscow, and in 1959 was appointed the head of the Soviet Literary Fund (!).
