love these ones, especially the one in Lithuanian - with the black hand. cool. never saw it before, although i am from Lithuania myself. strange.. i wonder what drawer it came from.

- its not posters, but matchboxes made in the same manner

I absolutely love these! I love old Eastern European posters (particularity Polish ones
already ...but the fact that these are environmental? Just puts them over the top for me!
The hand one reminds me of the Czech cartoon Krecik/Krtek, who had environmentally-conscious lessons to be learned at the end of episodes:

I don't really know that much about Polish poster. Maybe I should look it up.
No way! I was just watching Krtek (Little Mole) YESTERDAY! I LOVE THAT CARTOON!!!!
Krotik is so cute!

I love these! I wish I could purchase some. Maybe next time I go back to Ukraine I will look for them. No idea where to look though!

I would not know where to purchase them in Ukraine because I am from Moscow. I have a bunch my mother bought back during soviet times.

I think that eBay would be your best bet for finding stuff like this. Anytime I've been in Poland trying to find folk art items and the like, I have a harder time than expected.

Go to Moscow. There is a big flea market where old Soviet posters, books, medals, uniforms and toys are sold. Sometimes they also sell reproductions of Soviet posters on Union square in NYC but they are not as good as these posters.
