Soviet-era scrapbook





“In Oct 2010 while on a research trip in Tajikistan I came across a curious scrapbook of Soviet-era graphics in a junk-shop in the capital city Dushanbe.

Within it were pages with collaged panels containing imagery ranging from depictions of cosmonauts, political figures, musical iconography and political illustrations in Constructivist and Suprematist styles.

In some cases panels were glued top of other images and sometimes with interesting juxtapositions – images of birds coupled with communist slogans and geometric forms.”

LOVE these! Lots more at mr prudence’s photostream here. First seen @CreativeReview.
