New Year's Greetings

Recommended Posts

the card scanned here was posted in 1982 to greet the new year in Soviet Russia.

it wasn't a postcard i actively acquired; it came as backing in a mailer from Russia to protect a more vintage Russian, ballet card.

it's hardly 'high art' but with Father Frost looking so dwarflike, i'm reminded of the fate-like gnomes who inhabit the clock striking midnight in Prokofiev's CINDERELLA.

it all says HAPPY NEW YEAR in its happy way. (the hammer&sickle stamp on the back is now dated, but the new year cheer is not.)
