Sourced from "The Book of Tasty and Healthy Food" (1953), these images of Soviet foods were re-touched with small sparkles and re-printed as posters. Prefaced by Stalin's quote about the benefits of revolution, 1953 year's edition is a significant marker in time of Soviet history. With Stalin's death that same year, repression era saw its end, and the release of political prisoners took place for the first time in decades. ( "A special trait of our revolution lays in the fact that it gave the people not only freedom and affluence, but also a possibility of prosperous and cultured life." Joseph Stalin, from "The Book of Tasty and Healthy Food", 1953)
