About The Poster: According to a recent Guardian article "Russia has a rich tradition of political satire. Late 17th-century luboks, popular proto-cartoons, offered sometimes biting political commentary, not sparing even the famously ill-tempered and brutal reformer Peter the Great or the Orthodox hierarchy. They were often censored and their authors persecuted for blasphemy."

Covering all types of topics that were top-of-mind at the time in the former Soviet Union, these original, small gems from 1989 are perfectly suitable for framing in a child's room ... or perhaps the office of a Russian politician?

25 individual sheets, all in very good condition, with portfolio cover. As shown.
