We’ve featured a few of the collaborations between Magma and Redstone Press in the past, but that is no reason not to mention their latest offering of Soviet Union Children’s Books Prints.
In the 1920s and 1930s, artists and writers who were restricted in their work turned to children’s literature, where they were able to work with much more freedom and creativity. This led to a brief golden era of for children’s books, which have provided the inspiration for this collection of prints.
There are four prints in the series; three new prints and one re-print. Pictured at the top of this article is the re-print, The Woods. The Sunset and The Snowman prints have a similar style, whilst the Bear Cub by Yevgeny Ivanovich Charushin is somewhat different, reflecting the artist’s fondness for animals and his interest in recreating them accurately. The prints cost £30 each.
