A collection of forty Cold War, anti-capitalist, anti-American cartoons by Sándor Ék.

Sándor Ék alias Alex Keil (1902–1975) was a Hungarian graphic artist who is mostly known for his communist propaganda posters and cartoons. Ék spent some months in Russia in the early 1920s where he studied under El Lissitzky. Between 1925 and 1933 he lived in Germany and worked as an illustrator for the “Arbeiter Illustrierte Zeitung" and the official newspaper of the Communist Party of Germany, “Die Rote Fahne”. He gained reputation with his anti-fascist and communist posters and cartoons that could be compared to the works of John Heartfied.

This collection is his first postwar album, a very early Cold War propaganda.
