Cold War Cold Cabinet

Here's a page from "The Soviet Commodity Dictionary," a nine-volume publication that starting in 1956 was kind of a Communist Sears catalogue. Beautiful illustrations of clothing, foodstuffs, knick-knacks, household objects, and oh-so-much more were deliberately designed to appeal to the nascent materialist tendencies in the population. [I'd make a contemporary kompromat correlation here, but yet another White House staffing scandal is unfolding and I must go monitor my Twitter feed.]
