This poster was issued the week before the launching of Yuri Gregarin into space - the poster is dated 15th April 1961, and the launch was on the 22nd. This lovely, unlined poster is in very good condition - folds are apparent but poster is vibrant, intact and otherwise remarkably well-preserved. The text reads "Glory to the Fatherland of heros". From the private collection of a recent emigre. We love posters like this one which give us a glimpse into another culture, another social reality, and a political history which has played such a significant role in shaping the lives of millions. Once common, these Soviet political posters are becoming quite scarce: recently a French auction site priced a poster similar to this one at over $1000!lease see our other posters, prints and ephemera on this site. Thank you!
