78,  pp. 15x11 cm. In original illustrated cardboards. Slightly rubbed, otherwise very good.
One of 5000 copies. Very rare. Contrasting cover design was produced by Konstantin Zotov (1906-1990) who achieved a certain fame by designing posters of children and their health as well as creating children’s books. After World War II and anti-fascist posters, he came back to children and started to work in the Soviet animation studio.
This is a collection of poems by Sergei Shchipachev dedicated to ‘the sixth part of the world’ that was a common phrase describing the USSR after Vertov’s film in 1926.
