ONE OF 1,000 COPIES. An early work of the famous Soviet Russian poet of Nature and the Working Man. Segodnya (Today) was a short-lived artists' collective who produced the first avant-garde Russian children's book publishing company immediately after the Revolution. Liubavina later left for Vitebsk where she taught the workers' evening classes. "Sokolov-Mikitov's mysterious Zasuponya, who resembles a three-eyed pinecone, chases a crane from its swampy home, smashing its eggs and ruining its nest. Zasuponya was just one of many creatures in a neo-pagan mythology taking shape in the works of Russian writers" (Steiner p 17).
