Product Description

From the Inside Flap

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. It 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. This elegant new English edition of a classic work of Russian children's literature and illustration has a fun rhyming story coupled with beautiful bright narrative images Not just for children, this is an essential for all lovers of twentieth century avant-garde Russian art. Last week a lady checked her baggage: a suitcase, a hatbox, a couch, a painting, a package, a pouch, and last but not least, one cute little pooch. But will the baggage reach its destination? Follow the fate of the lady, her luggage and her cute little pooch in this charming and stunningly illustrated caper.

A thrilling typographic adventure 17 May 2013
By Jan Mark - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The book is a beautiful reproduction of the original.
The interplay between text and pictures makes it a thrilling typographic adventure!
I feel like a child again- although I am almost seventy years old- when enjoying this wonderful book!
I do recommend Marshak's and Lebedev's "Baggage" to all art lovers- children and grownups alike!
Ps: If you want to know how Marshak's original russian text might sound there is a transcription of the russian original included at the end of the book
