    Wonderful, powerful images! If only we still had this level of pride in space programs…

    Really cool images!!!! Especially – through the worlds and centuries ….I was wondering if it’s possible to use these posters in your designs? Are they free to use or there are some restrictions?

    These are beautiful. I agree with Nick Stevens. It’s a shame we don’t still have this level of excitement about space exploration.

    Just started getting into Soviet Propaganda Art – I must say, these are the most beautiful works of art that I’ve ever seen!

    Why don’t they make stuff like this anymore? Seriously wish I was alive when this stuff was in public.

    Extraordinary, moving, inspirational as inspirational in its way as Russian classical music. Thank you. By the way, the recent video on Sparrow Hills outside of Moskva, ‘Puttin’ on the Ritz,’ was the most delightful film I’ve ever seen.

    Soviet marketing (“propaganda”) was always far better than American, and it really inspired people with goals beyond the personal. The problem was, Soviet production could not actually give the people enough of the things they wanted and knew were possible.

    American propaganda (“marketing”) was always backed up by production. If it was advertised, you knew it was available. The ads were not inspiring – but they made you want the product. That’s why the words “Coca-Cola” are the most recognized of any words in any human language…
