Lot 0131 Details

Description
V kosmos! [To Space!], a poster by R. Dementiev, Voyenizdat, Moscow, 1961, 88 x 69 cm.

This poster was produced immediately after the Vostok-2 landing, possibly by adding the TASS communique text and Titov's portrait to a stock poster design kept for such emergencies. The formulaic inscription under the Gagarin's portrait mentions his Hero of the Soviet Union status; the inscription under Titov's portrait does not. One may argue that the poster was sent to the printer sometime between the day of Vostok-2 landing (August 6, 1961) and the day when Titov became the Hero of the Soviet Union (August 9, 1961). Actually, there is no need for such convoluted arguments - the poster imprint contains the “signed into production” date. See also lot 137.
