Children’s Books, Soviet Style

RUSSIAN ARTISTS AND THE CHILDREN'S BOOK 1890-1992.
 
Just in time for the holidays, Albert Lemmens and Serge Stommels, Dutch collectors/scholars, self-published a large-format, beautiful English-language reference on Russian/Soviet children’s books. Says Howard Garfinkel of Productive Arts, “It is a comprehensive study with over 1,100 color illustrations and comes with a CD with a few thousand more.” Productive Arts is selling the book in North America for $195 + shipping.
