A Russian Diary: 2010

Redstone Press (UK) published a diary illustrated with Russian children’s books dating from 1920 till 1935. 

Through the ’20s and ’30s, in the early Soviet Union, there flowered briefly a golden age of children’s books. Great artists and writers, often prohibited from other work, created a benign and fabulous alternative world. It was a world made for children, where learning went hand-in-hand with enchantment. Redstone’s Diary for 2010 gives us, every day, a glimpse of that magical domain.
