They are classic propoganda posters with a twist. The star and mustard are soviet. So that makes 2 Soviet and 2 Chinese. Communist propaganda is no more or less incidious than capitalist propoganda. I'm sure they will take their turn at the letterpress whipping post soon enough too. Sunsets would be nice.

Is it an anti communism thing or something else?

you may have to resort to a gentle reverse roll. never recommended, but in this case and the other Chinese letter press i had to give it a little reverse roll after a a week or two of flattening
