Early Soviet Children's Books

McGill University has published a selection of the 1920's and 1930's era Soviet children's books from the library's special collections. They feature some wonderful Russian futurist and suprematist artwork, as well as many inspiring tales of the country's accomplishments following the 1917 revolution.

These books aren't for sale, but only because they're rare, not because they're Bolshevik. Still, they're just what every Commie baby needs.

Had to stop lurking to let you know I enjoy your posts, and this reminded me of this:

Here find "the World's Largest Collection of Antique Illustrated Children's Books Online (we think)"
http://www.childrensbooksonline.org/

I love this site, because you get all the charm without brittle moldy and potentially expensive antique books becoming part of your child's diet.

Thought you'd like it.
