IVANOVA, VERA, illustrator. Miud. Moscow and Leningrad: GIZ, 1930.

When Pravda called for a new socialist children's literature shortly after the October Revolution, Mayakovsky soon offered his talents as a poet to write for future comrades. These poems were often political in content and did not always sit well with the authorities. MIuD is an acronym for Myra Iunoshei Den or "International Youth Day." Mayakovsky and Ivanova took potshots at military officers and clergy and glorified Lenin and marching Pioneers in this posthumously published agitprop children's book.
