As soon as I saw this beautiful VMC special edition I felt in love with cover design by Jacqueline Groag created in 1953.Puppet Ballet is reminiscent of early-20th century Soviet designs but also captures the spirit and optimism of design in mid-century decorative arts.(from cora ginsburg llc)

it makes me think of Russian Ballet and beautiful drawings by Léon Bakst


  1. The puppet ballet cover is gorgeous!
    It does remind me of early 20th century soviet art. Love it.
    Love your blog:)

  2. OMG, I love the belly dancer with an actual belly. Thank God for real women shapes!!! LOL Liz

  3. Wow! What beautiful drawings. I'm just dying. We're thinking about having a Russian themed Christmas party. I think it would be grand.
