Vintage Russian Camera Manuals
Posted by Jakub
Came across a huge collection of camera and lens manuals from the Soviet Union, all of them have that DDR/Cold War feel and look. Being born in communist Poland i’ve been shown a lot of this kind of design thru my whole life, I find a strange attraction to it.

Love the camera gun, but where is the link to the original find?

Love these designs! Reminds me of few vintage russian microphone adverts I’ve seen as well.
