Seeing Russian stuff and how they get special in some art fields, it reminds me, just on the side of my mind, that they have their own version of Winnie the Pooh series. They are as old as the Disney's ones. Have you seen it? It is completely different, of course, gives little sad feeling, especially after you know the Disney one BUT it is very beautifully drawn.
It is on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EuBzKV6XgvA

Hi I love the russian avant-garde books. I think the last photo is of a book with Hebrew letters not Russian (Cyrillic)?

The last book with the Hebrew alphabet is actually not written in Hebrew. It is Yiddish: a non-territorial German language of Jewish origin, written with the Hebrew alphabet and not in Latin alphabet.
Some of the Russian avant-garde were of Jewish origin.
