A Ordinatsev, 1981: Special clothes, or overalls can’t disguise alcohol. Don’t try and get it into the workshop – don’t slip it past security!
Alcohol is a publication from Fuel that presents a collection of unpublished Soviet anti-alcohol posters.
The book covers designs produced from the 1960s to the 1980s. These posters were displayed in public places and served as information posters warning against the negative social and personal effects of alcohol and alcoholism.
Each poster is translated to reveal slogans like “Little by little you end up with a hooligan”, accompanied with graphics that include cartoon characters having a red-nose or looking bleary-eyed, in constructivist-style compositions.
Take a look at some of these eye-catching posters below.
