First of all, the author's composition of the almanac is surprising. Here it was possible to massively publish the works of photographers of the "decaying West": from the USA, Japan, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland, France and Great Britain. Moreover, photographers from the socialist camp provided such pictures that Soviet magazines would hardly have dared to post!

Of course, the "line of the party and government" was traced in "Photo 66" - but it looked more like a kind of ransom to censorship.
By the way, about the price. In the Soviet Union, an almanac could only be bought for two rubles. Decent price for periodicals! See what you could buy for two rubles in those days. Naturally, the cost of the publication was not accidental - it was one of the forms of censorship, so that such printed products could not be affordable for ordinary workers.
The volume of the almanac was 85 pages in a format of 24x30 cm (oh, if only they would have made it to the size of 24x36!)
We managed to post a lot of pictures - I start to upload the first of them, and then the turn of very interesting publications will come.
