- The main goal of this book is to present an overview of illustrations for children's books by Russian artists. Therefore, the emphasis lies on the artists and not on the authors. Many Russian artists, even the most famous, worked as illustrators for children's books. In part one of this book, a chronological survey of the illustrated Russian children's book is positioned within its historical context. In the second part seventeen artists are portayed. A description of their life and work and the position of illustrations for children's books within their oeuvre are given. This study never was intended to be a comparative investigation between Russian en Western European children's book illustrations, although that subject does deserve an extensive and detailed investigation.
- Includes bibliographical references (p. 478-504) and index.
- Stommels, Serge-Aljosja.
