Poetry and essays from prominent Russian writers of the early 20th Century, brought together in the name of Futurist literary group, Liren. The wrappers were designed by Maria Sinyakova (1890-1984), a Ukrainian artist from Kharkov who was a notable figure in the avant-garde sphere and collaborator of the futurist group. She was expelled from the Artists' Union for 'bowing to Western art'. It is believed that Velimir Khlebnikov was in love with Sinyakova and dedicated many poems to her.
