Bold graphic design is on display in this 1977 Soviet -era tennis poster. The utilitarian image of a person- usually used on public signs - springs to life as it reaches its racquet out to return the ball to the other side of the net.

This poster was created for the 1977 USSR International Tennis Tournament, held in present-day Latvia. The texts tell us in Russian that "the strongest Soviet and foreign" tennis players will be competing, although it is a mystery what other countries' players participated. During the Cold War, the USSR had very few diplomatic friends in the West. This tournament was held in August, 1977, just months after the lead Soviet tennis players all decided to boycott playing at Wimbledon.

  • If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.

  • The Ross Gallery has the best selection of vintage posters I have ever seen. Seriously, if you are in the market, they are the people. And, they know everything there is to know about the posters' provenance.
