We’re going out of our usual territory today, but the detour is worth it. The destination? The Museum of Anti-Alcohol Posters.
This is a great collection of anti-drinking posters put together by Yuri Matrosovich for no other reason than his own amusement.
He found a few, then started to collect them, and then put them online and that is, er, it.
All the information I can give you about them is the English translations that he’s provided (and if anyone feels up to translating the one above I’d be very grateful); not knowing any Russian, I can’t discover dates or designers or, indeed, anything at all.
All there is to do is enjoy them. There are plenty more on Yuri’s website, but as he himself says, some are brilliant, some a bit more slapdash. But worth taking a look at anyway.
Rich Inner Substance
And now I’m off for a drink.
