1972 Soviet Anti-Alcohol poster by A.E. Bazilevich

"Russians, more than any other people in the world, are devoted to drinking," German traveler Adam Olearius observed in 1647. "After overindulging in spirits, like savage beasts they fall without measure or restraint on whatever undertaking their passionate desires lead them to. The sin of drinking is equally widespread across all estates—men and women, young and old, ecclesiastics and laity, commoners and nobility—to such a degree that the sight of a drunkard lying in a puddle on the street is an everyday occurrence." This 1972 poster by Ukranian designer A.E. Bazilevich is reproduced from staff favorite Alcohol: Soviet Anti-Alcohol Posters, published by FUEL. The text reads, "Not among trees or grasses, the serpent has warmed up among us. Don't suck on him, mammals, or you'll turn into a reptile yourself."
