Pin-ups and Propaganda

Russian illustrator Valery Barykin combines sexy pin-ups and that of Soviet Union propaganda to create a set of posters that you’d be hard-pressed to ignore.

Barykin uses perky pin-up models to drive home social issues such as how timely vaccination is key to stave off disease, how books make better girlfriends, and how gun-toting farmers shouldn’t scare young ladies disrobing in their wheat fields.

See some of his designs after the jump.
