soviet pencil

Soviet-era poster ad for a pencil. Although one might not associate the Soviet empire with advertising, the New Economic Policy (NEP) of 1921-1928 allowed for a bit of private enterprise and therefore some advertising. The period saw some interesting marketing including, for example, an ad for biscuits by Constructivist Rodchenko.
