NEW! Intourist Brochures and Luggage Labels

AntikBar has created a new page for Intourist travel brochures and luggage labels. Intourist was created in 1929 as a State Travel monopoly controlling all foreign tourist traffic into the USSR. Their advertising materials were aimed at attracting foreign tourists and designed in the bourgeois Art Deco style to create a glamorous portrayal of the Soviet Union. Virtually unknown in the USSR, Intourist adverts became a calling card of Soviet Russia as they were distributed in tourist offices, embassies, airports, hotels, train carriages and ocean liner cabins all over the world. Bold, bright and highly artistic they were printed with the highest quality materials and aimed at presenting to foreign tourists the joys of travelling in the USSR – first socialist country in the world.
