Design treasures

I’ve just started cataloguing a whole box of material that so far looks like it all relates to the Soviet Union. The dates covered are from 1927 – 1956 and already it looks to be full of fascinating material. I’m only on the second folder in the box but I just had to share these gorgeous designs with you all. Aren’t the colours on this just fantastic?!

The following two images are advertisements from the back cover and the inside front cover of the magazine.  The Volga is the largest river in Europe and it runs through large parts of Russia.  This issue of the magazine is devoted to the various different regional areas which lie along the banks of the river at various points in Russia.  The designs are so striking! I promise I’ll write a more in-depth article discussing the written material on the Soviet Union but for today I thought I would share these images.
