This catalogue introduces the Russian children’s book from the post-revolutionary and the Stalinist period until 1940. With an increasingly restrictive cultural policy those children’s books occupy a subversive niche. Lebedew, Majakowski, Mandelstam, El Lissitzky and others created distinguished pieces of constructivist and futuristic art.
