About the Poster
Towards New Frontiers! (Russian: К новым рубежам!) is a 1961 Soviet propaganda poster by Alexander Dobrov (Russian: Александр Добров).
In the top right of the poster you can see a rocket with the name Vostok (Восток) on it. The Vostok rocket was the spacecraft that took Yuri Gagarin - the first man in space - to the cosmos on April 12, 1961. This poster was published soon after the Gagarin circumnavigation of the globe and conveys the message that the Soviet people as a whole are part of this journey towards new frontiers.
On the left side of the picture are the roman numerals for the number 22. As one reads this poster from left to right, one is supposed to get an overwhelming sense of pride that from the beginning of WWII (22 years prior) to the current Gagarin space expedition, humanity has made incredible progress.
