Vintage Cigarette Boxes Feature Designs From The Soviet Space Program

In earlier decades, when someone reached for a smoke, they might shake out a cigarette from a box featuring the cosmonaut dog Laika, Sputnik, or the Soyuz. These largely Russian cigarette packages are a retro look at a time when even a quick hit of nicotine would remind us of our spacefaring dreams.
