A fine pair

Luggage by Samuel Marshak, illustrated by Vladimir Lebedev, 1929.

Redstone Press has teamed up with Magma to produce seven wonderful Masters of Early Russian Children's Books prints, based on some of the 1920s and '30s illustrations reproduced in the Redstone Press 2010 diary, which I have and love and featured here.

Pleskovskai Print
Kindergarten by M. Prigara, illustrated by Pleskovskaia, 1930

Each print is hand-screen printed as part of a limited edition of 100 and costs £30.
