Posters from the former Soviet Union 1
reflect the official ideology of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. Though they were printed in massive quantities, most were destroyed in the early 90's (no-one has realized the value of those posters...). The destruction was a systematic operation, so there really are only very few posters remaining. That fact has a big influence on their current price in the market.

All posters on this page are available. "det" in the image name means that the picture shows only a detail from a poster - look where the whole poster is listed for translation and price. Our comments are in italics, translations of the poster are in regular script. 

     

How big are the posters? There is a blue ruler by each poster and it measures exactly 1 ft or cca 30 cm!

Please be patient as the poster images load on this page - it is worth it to wait once and be able to browse thru the gallery without any more clicking...
