A wonderful, whimsical journey through the pioneering space-race graphics of the former Soviet Union

This otherworldly collection of Soviet space-race graphics takes readers on a cosmic adventure through Cold War-era Russia. Created against a backdrop of geopolitical uncertainty, the extraordinary images featured, taken from the period's hugely successful popular-science magazines, were a vital tool for the promotion of state ideology. Presenting more than 250 illustrations - depicting daring discoveries, scientific innovations, futuristic visions, and extraterrestrial encounters - Soviet Space Graphics unlocks the door to the creative inner workings of the USSR.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Visually delightful."-Atlas Obscura

"While the American view of the space race is well documented, this collection of more than 250 illustrations reveals another view. Beyond the search for life out there in the universe, the Soviet artwork often illuminates the equally important journey into our own minds, where anything can be possible."-Los Angeles Times Online
