A week ago, we featured a fresh, visually stunning Hungarian music video by Kerekes Band. The creator of this well animated video used Soviet stamps, postcards and posters from the 60s and 70s to create good-looking vintage space scenes.

To show how awesome these little printed images were, I scanned a few items of my personal collection of stamps, matchbox covers and postcards. Hope you enjoy!

I actual have a large USSR propaganda poster of the two orange soyuz rockets in the 3rd picture. My father stole it from a wall in Moscow sometime in the late 60s to early 70s while he was living in France at the time.
