“We Were Born To Make The Fairy Tale Come True!”: 51 Sensational Soviet Space Posters

In the 1950s and 1960s the Soviet Union assured the great unwashed that ploughing fortunes into the space race was good for them.


“Glory to the workers of Soviet science and technology!”

Artists from the Soviet Union looked to the skies and foresaw a Utopia in space. The Communists would bring peace and prosperity not only to the people of Earth but also to the technology-enabled, God-free Great Beyond. The artists created Soviet Space posters, vivid, energising and inspiring visions of the rosy-fingered dawn to tomorrow. They’re terrific.
