    These are awesome. That fourth one looks a bit like the bubble thing in The Fountain.

    The first "To the Moon" cover, the guys in the space suits in Black & White, remind me of the black & white Doktor Sleepless covers. Very good stuff.

    "Come, comrade space worker! Help crush the imperialist American pigdogs wearing their blue jeans and listening to their rock and roll while we strive to increase production on our vaguely Giger-esque bubble living quarters!"

    I totally love this:

    Soviet era Happy New Year card

    A Ukranian friend says it reads "Happy New Year." The Santa-ish fellow is Grandfather Frost. The woodland animals are visiting from an episode of "South Park," and have terrible plans for the little cosmonaut.

    Oh I say.

    I'd love some prints of those.

    I don't know, it looks to me like that lil' Cosmonaut is eyeing the fluffy bunny in a very suspicious manner.

    What's the Russian equivalent of "hassenpfeffer"?

    Thanks helloMuller, I've always loved the Soviet prints and the 50s era "SCIENCE Our Friend of the FUTURE!" vibe, so this combination is a conflation of awesome things custom made for me.

    Thanks, Muller! Thanks, Internet!

    It's fascinating how most of those Russian pics - minus the occasional Red Star and Cyrillic lettering - could have come straight out of an American or British sf magazine of the same era.

    Soviet-era art has a certain sad innocence to it.
