Country of origin: USSR / Russia
An interesting design by one of the most important Soviet Cold War designers, Valentin Viktorov. The hammer and sickle superimposed on an array of red flags – a rousing call to the people to participate in the 1968 elections – democracy Soviet style.
The poster is in reasonable condition with one small area of paper loss along the lower left vertical edge which measures approximately 1.0×0.5 cm. There are two small tears along the top edge which have been stabilised with acid free archival tape. Some very small and minor creases are evident which would disappear if the poster was linen backed. Above the lower right edge the print and production information is visible. This helpfully identifies the designer, the date, the printer, the cost & the print run of 300,000 from which this is likely to be a very rare survivor.
This is a lovely poster by Viktotov, one of the very best designers of the Soviet era.
