POSTERS 7 – Through the Worlds and Centuries

Through the Worlds and Centuries – Soviet propaganda poster

Through the Worlds and Centuries

This poster by Miron Lukianov and Vasily Ostrovsky in 1965 more closely resembles a western movie posters. The rocket trail becomes the path to infinity, walked by a young cosmonaut. Homage is paid to the late nineteenth century philosopher and visionary, Konstantin Tsialkovsky who claimed ‘the road to the stars is open’, in a time when all this was mere science fiction. The way leads to distant galaxies and beyond!

Cosmonauts: Birth of the Space Age can be seen at the Science Museum, London, until 13 March 2016
