1. PAKHOMOV, ALEXEI FEDOROVICH. Leto. [Summer.] Moscow: GIZ, 1927. 8 color lithographs printed on 4 sheets recto and verso. A wordless picture book depicting the joys of Summer in the country. Born of peasant stock, Pakhomov eventually became an important Soviet figure painter. He studied with Chekhonin and Dobuzhinsky and was one of V.V. Lebedev's prize pupils at VKhUTEMAS. Lebedev introduced him to illustrating children's books. He was especially good at drawing boys and girls; and his numerous picture books often reflected what he said was the happiest time of his life, growing up in the little village of Varlamova.
