Baggage by Samuil Marshak


Baggage by Samuil Marshak

Baggage was first published in Russia in 1926 as part of a plan for a new style of picture book, established by the Commissariat of Enlightenment to educate the children of the revolution. The delightful rhyming story, paired with beautiful bright narrative images, is the product of the exceptional and fruitful collaboration between the two leaders of the movement, the poet and writer, Samuil Marshak, and the avant-garde artist, Vladimir Lebedev. With an afterword by Sarah Suzuki from the The Museum of Modern Art, New York, this wonderful children's book is also an essential for all lovers of twentieth century avant-garde Russian art.
