About This Item

Moskva: Detizdat TsK VLKSM,1938
Livre d'artiste. First edition.
Leib Kvitko is an Yiddish poet, a member of The Kultur Lige. His books were translated by the best Soviet poets and illustrated by the Russian children's favourite artist Vladimir Konashevich. During the Second World War Kvitko became a member of Jewish Ani-Fascist Committee. Together with Peretz Markish, David Hofstein and Itzik Feffer he was executed in August 12th, 1952, known as the "Night of the Murdered Poets". Since 1949 all of his books were banned by Soviet censorship.
The series "Book-baby" was a method to save paper and to make available the good book for millions of Soviet children. It appeared since 1937 in Detizdat. There are books with illustrations of best Russian illustrators such as Elena Safonova, Alisa Poret. The publisher printed even Gustav Dore's illustrations in such small format.
