LIMITED EDITION of 250 copies, this is number 5. Miniature Book. 2 3/8 x 1 3/4 inches. 126 pp. Text in Russian, 16 illustrations; text clean, unmarked. Full blind- and gilt-stamped white morocco, multi-colored illustration of a woman's profile in art nouveau style on the front cover, all edges marbled, illustrated end-papers; binding square and tight. From Mel Kavin's private collection with his name inked into the preliminaries, a signature I cannot decipher, and dated "30-08-95." Fine. Mel Kavin had world-wide connections amongst miniature book aficionados, designers, and printers. This is a text of Russian-language verses by Edward Yanovsky, printed by the Russian printing house, Yaniko, that specializes in miniature books. During the Soviet era, there was a strong tradition of miniature books circulating in the underground, and there were a lot of publishers with great skill in the genre. Yaniko emerged from the Soviet era in the 1990s as a major publisher of miniature books. This volume has a particularly appealing illustrated leather binding.
