Soviet space posters - Cosmonauts: Birth of the Space Age exhibition at the Science Museum (sciencemuseum.org.uk)

Iraklii Toidze's In the Name of Peace, 1959 is just one of the powerful posters on display in the exhibition Cosmonauts: Birth of the Space Age at the Science Museum until 13th March 2016. As curator Natalia Sidlina writes: 'Toidze had been a poster designer since 1927. A decade before then the first propaganda posters had appeared in Russia, flagstones on a richly illustrated path that was to stretch across half a century from insurgency through war to outer space'.
