About This Item

Poughkeepsie, New York: Artists and Writers Guild, Inc, 1935. Very good.. Authorized American edition of this early large format Père Castor book, featuring striking and stylized Art Deco color lithographs by Russian émigré artist Guertik with dotted lines for children to finish the designs. It was émigré artists like Guertik, Nathalie Parain, Alexandra Exter, Feodor Rojankowsky, and Georges Cherkessof, working with avant-garde Constructivist, Dadaist, and Minimalist art philosophies, that gave the Père Castor books their greatest distinction and gained them long-lasting fame. This book first published by Flammarion in 1934. A nice intact copy. 10.5'' x 9.5''. Original side-stapled color pictorial flexible card wrappers. Illustrated by Guertik in color throughout, with "finishing" images intact and unused. [20] pages. Slight edge wear and soiling to wrappers, top front corner bumped.
