Item #657

#1, 3, 5 for 1926; #20 for 1927; #5, 7, 16 for 1928. Overall 7 issues. Moscow: Teakinopechat’, 1926-1928. 26x17,5 cm. In original illustrated wrappers. Very good. Tears of the spine (#3, 16, 20), Soviet bookshop’s stamp on the back cover (#3, both #5), a few spots.

Very rare. The main circus periodical of the 1920s, that was published every 10 days from 1925 till 1930. The periodical features constructivist wrappers as well as caricatures and sketches, photos (sometimes with the use of photomontage).
The wrapper of #3 (1926) was designed by Georgy Golts.
The wrapper of #5 (1926) was designed by Dmitrii Moor. This is the only wrapper designed by Moor for the periodical, and in our humble opinion the grin on the ‘happy’ clown drawn by the master of anti-religious satire, could have fitted very well in his periodical ‘Bezbozhnik’ [i.e. The Godless].
The wrapper of #5 (1928) was designed by Z. Makhlin. The issue was dedicated to the 10 years of ‘Gostsirk’.
The wrapper of #16 (1928) is designed by Kiselev.
Print run varied from 5000 to 13000 copies.
