Krylov Polychrome by Taranov

1956 Set of 10 colored Krylov postcard illustrations by M.A. Taranova.  $9.99 from dron7770 through eBay, Dec., '05.  A second set for $12 from migrace, Ukraine, through eBay, Dec., '11.

These cards, about 4" x 6", all are portrait and have a white strip at the bottom of their picture side.   Though the cards – and perhaps the paintings as well – are not of the highest artistic quality, I enjoy seeing Krylov's fables put into pictures.  Look below to find the thumbnails of the ten cards, and then click on them.
