Rare Russian Vintage Advertising Posters


In honor of Russia Day, we scoured the world wide web for interesting eye candy. We stumbled upon this unique gallery of posters from Tzarist and Soviet Russia. Check it out.

Once upon a time in Soviet Russia, advertising posters flourished with remarkable design – making them highly prized collector’s items today.

Whilst earlier Art Nouveau advertisements exuded elegance and featured only the most precious products,
design changed fast when the Communists came to power. Eventually however, the Russians started injecting more tasteful design elements such as traditional art, and even resorted to stranger concepts as you can see below.
