Fresh discovery from a recent road trip. Beautiful prints/postcards from the World Festival of Youth and Students for Solidarity, Peace and Friendship 1968 held in Bulgaria. On the back there is a small paragraph that pleads for world peace for future generations.

Beautiful! The colour and layout of the starburst really resonates. These would be just as striking on walls today.

Oof! Those are a real smack in the eye :) Lovely.

Nice works… Thanks :)

This is like seeing prison art. Imagine the grotesque irony of Bulgarian designers copying the style of the 60′s pop culture, while living in the grey horror that was totalitarian Eastern Europe. It’s good to see that sincerity is never a necessary ingredient in design.
