Had a nice fix of Sovtastic Awesomeness thanks to the London Science Museum's Cosmonauts exhibition. Which only runs for about another week, I think..?

Yes a really fab exhibition. I was struck by how solid the sov capsules were compared with the American replicas. They were like 1950s ovens. I also adore my Laika the Spacedog tote bag. I am a sucker for museum shops.

The Guardian has just run an article about Soviet architecture (though has a top ten with less than ten pictures)

I liked the look of this, and backed it over the weekend:

OCTOBRIANA WITH LOVE via Kickstarter

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/octobrianawithlove/octobriana-with-love

Features some nice artwork by the venerable Fraser Droid.

One annoying snag - as there always is with these things - postage will be charged at a later date, and I can expect it to be about €20 for delivery to Murphyville.

It does look fun. The shipping makes it a very expensive purchase, unfortunately. I've noticed shipping rates have seemed very high on a few North American Kickstarters recently.
