Soviet and Palestine Poster Collection

This extraordinary collection was acquired by our seller during his trips to the USSR and Lebanon in the 1960s and 1970s.

 

Soviet Posters: In March 1969, the consignor was selected to join a UK delegation representing the National Union of Students on an extended visit to the USSR. The trip lasted several weeks, during which time he stayed in Moscow, Leningrad and Tallinn, where he acquired some of the posters. Later that year, he wrote to the Soviet authorities and they sent several packages of posters to him at university. 

  

Palestine Posters: The Palestinian posters were obtained by the consignor in the summer of 1971 when he left the University of Manchester to travel to the Middle East. He had studied Middle East politics as part of his university course and was intending to apply for a post graduate course at the AmericanUniversity in Beirut. On arrival he realised that the university was not fully functioning due to the ongoing political and military situation in the area, and the already unstable situation was rapidly deteriorating. At the time, he was considering becoming a journalist and arranged an introduction with Bassam Abu Sharif, the spokesperson for the PFLP (Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine), for an interview. During this meeting in September 1971 he was given many of the posters that form this collection. The new symbol of the PFLP had only been adopted in May 1969 and these posters are among the earliest published by the Palestinian resistance.
