LARGE RETRO RUSSIAN MAP OF THE WORLD

1987 GLASNOST ERA USSR

DSF1442 DSF1446

A large school wall map of Russian origion with text in Cyrillic script.

This map appears to have been printed in 1987, the beginning of the historic 'Glasnost' era of relative openess spanning the five year period from 1986-91 which ended in the dissolution of the U.S.S.R. and the beginning of the Russian Federation as we know it today.

In 1986, aware of the term's historical and more recent resonance, Mikhail Gorbachev and his advisers adopted "glasnost" as a political slogan, together with the obscure "perestroika".

Fairly rough and ready, this map is not cloth backed but has been printed on two sheets of thick, glossy paper with a centre joint. The paper shows some rippling and wear to the surface, consistant with age and school use. It is currently stapled to home-made wooden battens, we can remove them if not required.
