BUBNOV, M. Go Beyond the Seas and Oceans..., 1940.

Poyeszhai za morya &8212; okeany... [Go Beyond the Seas and Oceans...], a poster by M. Bubnov. Published by Iskusstvo, Moscow-Leningrad, 1940. 91.5 x 60 cm.

``Go beyond the seas and oceans / Fly over the whole Earth / There are many different countries in the world/ But you won't find one like ours`` The poster is set to the words of a patriotic poem by M. Isakovsky, ``The Song of the Soviet Union.`` As far as we could determine, Isakovsky's work was originally published as a poem, and was not turned into a real song until 1945, with musical score supplied by M. Kolosov.

We have no information about the poster artist M. Bubnov. The only other poster signed ``M. Bubnov`` we have seen was produced in besieged Leningrad in 1942.
