136 pages, 11.75 by 8.5 inches, black and red (the last ten spreads are all red) and an intermittent use of page numbers. The book's jacket is slightly different from the book's cover. I assume the illustrations are created by scraper board, a technique that is largely forgotten now but the technique works a treat in these pages.
I wouldn't have expected a State publishing house to put out such a wonderfully designed book but here it is. Most of the pages are text but I've posted a selection of the graphic ones.
If any Past Print fans know Russian I would like a translation of the title...thanks.
