Today these rarely seen posters are highly sought-after by collectors, not only for their age (many are 19th and 20th century) but because they encapsulate both the political climate of pre-revolutionary and communist Russia. A visual snapshot to the mood & opinions of the nation as it were.
These 12 unique designs depict everyday Russian’s alongside bold advertising slogans and stylish typography. Each poster is then finished off with a blast of striking colour designed to attract attention and compel you into action. The products featured are just as varied too, these posters are advertising tobacco types to different beers through to the benefits of waterproof shoes and soap.
