Christmas Fair at the Cooperative stores is a 1960s vintage Hungarian event advertising poster.
Charming poster from the 1960s for a Christmas Fair. The fair took place in the official shops of the co-operative, which probably offered tight supply. Nevertheless the poster portrays the fair as an enchanting event what was a typical phenomena in teh socialist era: everything was perfect on the putside, but in reality it was rather the opposite.
The poster is a decorative piece with geometric design. The red and blue houses resemble a nice small village, covered with snow what gives an atmospheric feeling and a clear and harmonic composition.
