Soviet Anti-Alcohol Prop. Interesting historical collection.

I like many of these posters from a design standpoint.

Same here, expletive. That first one with the wrench/wine glass motif is as smart as anything today's Western designers have produced.

I'm pretty sure this has been posted before? At the time, I saved the pirate with a bottle for a leg as I thought it would make a good pic for a party invite.

Party invitations! Great idea! I think I'd go with this one, myself.

It's amazing how much these look like Absolut ads...

Perhaps another high-traffic site had posted a link to these before, Onanist, because I thought it was a double as well but couldn't find it in the archives. Nevertheless, it's a good link (so, thank you, McBain), and I, too, like them from a design standpoint (especially this one, which I had saved to my hard drive from wherever I found it before). Party invitations is a great idea, Decani.

Double. Not that I care.

Too bad the posters weren't in bear-Russian
