A RUSSIAN DIARY for 2010
Through the ‘20s and early ‘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. The Redstone Press Diary for 2010 gives
us, every day, a glimpse of that magical domain.
Artists and writers include El Lissitzky, V. Mayakovsky, S. Marshak, V.
Lebedev and K. Chukovsky.
The spiral-bound desk diary (245mm x 167mm) has a week-to-view with an
image for each week of the year. It also contains two pockets, an address
book section, and a tale by Andrey Platonov translated by Robert Chandler.
