So unbelievably stunning. Amazing all of the near forgotten talent from the east. Thanks so much for posting this.
My eye had to adjust a little bit to be able to "read" these illustrations, but it makes them very enjoyable to look at. Thank you for sharing this book. There is so much amazing stuff on your blog!
You've done it again... your Soviet book collection is simply awesome, and I am in love with all of these animals... well, maybe some more than others!
Oh, wow. Gorgeous. And inspiring!
These animals are so beautiful! They remind me of the Hungarian children's books illustrator Karoly Reich. He used to draw peasant life scenes with a lot of traditional ornaments too and the same typical animals like wolf, fox, cat and chicken. I had posted some of his pictures a while ago. http://defifee.com/blog/karoly-reich/
Fantastic. I work at the library, and often marvel over the Russian language (and illustrated) books in the children's area. Thanks for including this artist's work.
Please do feature the other book you have, it is so interesting! Also, quite amazing the uniqueness of the patterns despite "russian style" can be recognised.. Stunning book!
who was the author of this particular book??
These illustrations are beautiful. There is something dark about childrens fairytales, just wrote a small post on Grimms tales as I'm reading their stuff at the moment. Your insight into childrens writing and illustration is really interesting. Thanks for the post!Helena
