Translated into Russian by Nina Demurova.
Illustrated by Yuri Vashchenko.
Moscow: Kniga, 1982.
Vashchenko’s brilliantly surreal illustrations were done in intense collaboration with translator Demurova. This small, lavishly produced volume was originally available only in the Beriozka, or hard currency, stores in the Soviet Union. This copy is inscribed to Clare and August Imholtz by both artist and translator.
