Temporarily out-of-stock.   By Anatolii Kalashnikov.Moscow:  Evrika, 1993. Kalashnikov RE (Hon), SWE (Hon), one of the most talented wood engravers of all time, designed more than 1,000 bookplates, of which 500 of his choice – 47 in color – are illustrated in this magnificent book. Kalashnikov as a man was larger than life, and this translated into his art, which was explosive, emotional, masculine, so essentially Russian in its depth and intensity. His bookplates occupy a central place in the international bookplate movement of the 1960-90s, each an admirable representative of the Russian national tradition in wood engraving yet embodying universal ideals. Hardback with dustjacket, 576 pp.
