Atomic Survival Book

Collection: The Online Flea

In the first decades of the Cold War, the threat of atomic attack loomed large, and planning for 'survival' was a constant preoccupation. In subsequent years we learned how tragically insufficient some of this planning would have been—students encouraged to take shelter under school decks is a striking example—and so the artifacts of these times take on extra weight.

This vintage 30-page manual outlines then-believed tactics for protecting yourself in the event of such an attack, and everything from its design to its content evokes a simpler time with more terrifying threats.
