Leningrad, Raduga, 1926
£650

A wonderful children's book from the Soviet publishing house 'Raduga' (rainbow) in remarkable condition. The charming illustrations feature a 'fairytale' on the verso and a 'true fact' on the recto. For example, a flying carpet and an airplane, and a firebird and electricity. There was a clear motive behind these vivid images to emphasise the modernity of the Soviet state and how far technology had advanced in the 1920s.
