I stumbled across this massive archive of Russian Posters this morning ranging in categories from advertising, entertainment, military, agitational (whatever that means), movies, to social. It takes a little doing navigating around the somewhat archaic site but once you get into the meat there is some absolutely fantastic posterwork to behold. There is a lot of it too. You could spend a good chunk of time on this site just surfing. I love finding stuff like this because there is always something in these old poster archives that can inspire something new. The attention to composition and the dramatic portrayal of feeling always invigorates me when I look at this kind of work.
