Soviet Space Propaganda of the ‘50’s and 60’s
Via Retronaut, we are treated to a brilliant collection of Soviet space propaganda posters from the peak days of the space race. Hot on the heels of Sputnik in 1957, the Soviet Glory Machine was on full tilt. There’s something about artwork from this era of the USSR that is just stunning.
We may have beat them to the moon, but I think they beat us in the “National Pride Artwork” category. I highly recommend perusing the whole collection. Goodness knows, after the failure of Phobos-Grunt, the modern Russian space program might benefit from a little propaganda pat on the back.
But hey, at least our astronauts like to skip and sing! WHEEEE!!!!
