MARSHAK, SAMUIL YAKOLEVICH. 1887-1964.
PAKHOMOV, ALEKSEI FEDOROVICH, illustrator. Master. Leningrad: GIZ, 1927.
4to (265x 210 mm). 8 pp. Original color lithographed wrappers. Back wrapper reinforced.

FIRST EDITION of this charming "production book" in which a little boy becomes a master craftsman by doing as his father does. Pakhomov was one of V. V. Lebedev's prize pupils. Born into a peasant family, he proved to be a superb illustrator for children and one of the most beloved. He later became a highly successful Soviet painter and lithographer. Although his subjects were much the same as those of the Social Realists in their glorification of the noble Worker and the Peasant, Pakhomov's art is more lyrical than their generally blatant propaganda.
