In Russia, Bill Posters YOU!

Check out the striking (if not sometimes brutal) graphics of Soviet posters at the blog A Soviet Poster A Day.





Alexander Zakharov posts a different one (almost) daily, covering a wide variety of topics and visual styles, with a translation and background information. Fantastic!

That's fabulous. That red is just gorgeous. And I love that graphical style. So very crisp!

Ha, the word verification is "urhits"... very Russian mangled English.

Some of the posters are very striking! ...and some are even a bit ghoulish.
