A true step back in time. Thank you! Reply Baska September 26, 2011 The blue and white print with the rowing figures is STUNNING! I want it! I’m new to your site and I’m enjoying it immensely. Thanks! Reply Chris September 27, 2011 Thanks Baska, I am very glad you are enjoying the Retronautic experience Reply johnnyzero September 27, 2011 superb! thanks. Reply Brianne September 28, 2011 Mother Russia has style. Reply Maurice September 30, 2011 These are great. I agree with Baska, the rowers are wonderful. It reminds me strongly of a print by Cyril Powers called “The Eight” (1930). Reply Karin September 30, 2011 Are these under any copyright agreement? Reply Chris September 30, 2011 Not that I am aware of, Karin Reply eddie November 13, 2011 of course not, why would the communists use something so silly as copyright ?? the freedom of creation production and distribution is manifest so pretty in these patterns. awesome.

Consider how anything of Russian origin is being bought up in the west. Just a thought. Reply Leslie Bubulj February 17, 2012 Don’t kid yourself. Anything of value will be well covered.

Reply John August 2, 2012 I want the red one Reply Jahful September 15, 2012 I love that you’ve posted these and I love the historicity of them, but these are excruciatingly hideous. There are maybe one or two that look… ok… the majority of them are repellent. Reply Paul September 16, 2012 Stunning display of design talent, even the comrades’ Tractor fetish. Some of them would be popular today. Reply Sofia October 26, 2012 Are you kidding me? Man, I’d kill for a ’50s-style pinup apron covered in that hammer and sickle with wheat print.
