russian scrapbook 2 Soviet Era Graphics Scrapbook
Vintage Russian ephemera is one of my favorite things, so I was instantly mesmerized by pictures of this curious little scrapbook that was discovered in a junk store in Tajikistan by visual artist Paul Prudence.

Within it were pages with collaged panels containing imagery ranging from depictions of cosmonauts, political figures, musical iconography and political illustrations in Constructivist and Suprematist styles.
In some cases panels were glued on top of other images and sometimes with interesting juxtapositions – images of birds coupled with communist slogans and geometric forms.

This is some of the best eye candy I’ve come across in a long time. I only wish my years of high school and college Russian classes weren’t so rusty so I could read more of what’s in there! [via Junkculture]
