RARE COLLECTION OF CHILDREN'S WRITING AND DRAWING SELECTED BY THE GREAT RUSSIAN AVANT-GARDE POET. The invention, spontaneity and purity of juvenilia fascinated Kruchenykh and he published this anthology himself. The combination of various paper stocks of relatively poor quality in this volume reflects the Cubo-Futurist ideal of avant-garde book publication. MoMA 96; 245.
