Ben Perry has posted 1,469 images of Russian posters spanning the years 1917 to 1991. Here’s the link. Mixed Signals (where I found this) has a short commentary including a quote from Ben.

The posters cover propaganda, movies, plays, and I’m guessing more like the one I chose which is a circus poster for the clown Anton Pilosyan. Looks like most are identified in some way in the comments.

I really had a hard time choosing a favorite so I grabbed Anton in honor of my three grandkids.
