Those of you who have been following Animalarium for a while are aware of my special interest in children's book illustrators of the early Soviet era. In fact, that's part of a larger fascination with Russian art and design of the 1910-30s, including advertising and propaganda, movie posters (I absolutely love the Stenberg brothers), applied arts, etc. Lately I have been collecting favorite pictures of book covers from books and websites, and now it's time to share some. I am trying to keep them in chronological order since it's interesting to see how they tend to change in time. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
