During the Cultural Revolution, the Chinese government published anthologies of reference materials for the benefit of artists, educators and graphic designers.

These volumes of revolutionary "clip art," containing hundreds of images, were printed in the tens of thousands and circulated extensively throughout the country.

The anonymous artists who created these images worked in the style of traditional woodblock prints and paper-cuts. Inspired by Chinese folktales, the images brilliantly recast classical themes and motifs within the context of Mao's revolution.
