This uncommon collection of Russian fairy tales includes the distinctive work of Ivan Bilibin (1876-1942), one of the most influential illustrators and stage designers of the 2oth century. Born in St Petersburg, and a student of the Russian artist Ilya Repin, he first gained renown in 1899 with his illustrations for a series of Russian fairy tales (a selection of which appears in this book). He went on to design the 1909 production of Rimsky-Korsakov’s opera The Golden Cockerel in Moscow.
