Hullo,
Thanks to my eclectic taste in buying books, it seems, Amazon recommended the following book to me: "Soviet Bus Stops: Photographer Christopher Herwig has covered more than 30,000km by car, bike, bus and taxi in 13 former Soviet countries discovering and documenting these unexpected treasures of modern art. From the shores of the Black Sea to the endless Kazakh steppe, these bus stops show the range of public art from the Soviet era and give a rare glimpse into the creative minds of the time. The book represents the most comprehensive and diverse collection of Soviet bus stop design ever assembled from: Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Ukraine, Moldova, Armenia, Abkhazia, Georgia, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia. With a foreword by writer, critic and television presenter Jonathan Meades."

Looking at the pictures they would look absolutely appropriate for cold-war gone horribly wrong and other dystopian sci-fi settings, e.g.



Cheers,
Aksu

Don't look like it's going to get many customers.
