Chinese Space Program Promoganda Posters

chinese_space_poster_srl.jpg

Stefan Landsberger has a collection of posters promoting the Chinese space program, which is relatively young. Which makes the visual style of these things all the more remarkable; for all China's capitalist transformation, fantastical social realism still rules the day. Gorgeous stuff, though, I wonder if you can buy these anywhere...
