The Museum of Modern Art, New York


A lady checks her luggage for a train ride: a couch, a suitcase, a traveling bag, a picture, a basket, a hat-box, and a little dog. Will they all make it to her destination? During the 1920s in Russia, many authors, poets, and talented visual artists worked with fervent dedication and the support of the government to create a new type of children’s literature, one that drew on both the aesthetic innovations of the period and contemporary social and political philosophy to inspire and stimulate young minds. This whimsical children’s picture book was one of several collaborations between Vladimir Lebedev and Samuil Marshak, many of which are now in the collection of The Museum of Modern Art. This volume reproduces the original book in size, shape, and layout, with new English translations. The dynamic graphic compositions and playful rhyming texts remain as compelling today as they were nearly a century ago.
