Profoundly influenced by V.V. Lebedev, D. Bulanov is one of the greatly under-appreciated masters of the Soviet picture book. He also designed some splendid posters and a guide book for the Leningrad Zoological Gardens. In Poezda, a little boy considers the progress of the railway train through light verses and amusing, child-like drawings.
