I am delighted to announce the forthcoming publication of my new book on revolutionary postcards in Imperial Russia, which is out on the 7 November.

Although now little known, picture postcards were the most widespread form of visual propaganda produced during the reign of the last Tsar, and a powerful weapon in the struggle against autocracy.

“Greetings from the Barricades” is the product of extensive archival research in Russia, Europe, and America. Alongside an in-depth text, it contains over 200 colour illustrations – the vast majority previously unpublished.

More details can be found here:

I am very pleased to say that “Greetings From The Barricades” is now out. If anybody is interested in learning more, here is a link to a short video:

“Greetings From The Barricades”, which is extensively illustrated, provides an entirely novel perspective on late Imperial Russia. For anybody interested in the history of this fascinating period, the book offers a compelling insight into the politics of this turbulent time, and shines a new light on many different aspects of Nicholas II’s reign and rule.

The in-depth text is based on original documents in the Russian police and censors’ archives, and almost all the 220-plus images are previously unpublished.

The best place to purchase copies is directly from the publisher – please see link below (Amazon is currently more expensive):
