Flammarion Paris 1937 - Square 25 x 25 cm opening to 145 cm panorama; some folds repaired. Original pictorial boards; extremities rubbed, corners bumped. Beautiful children's book published as part of the Flammarion's series Le Père Castor and illustrated by Russian émigré artist Alexandra Exter. One side is a striking full colour panorama done with rich colours and much detail in avant-garde style. The text appears on verso accompanied by monochromatic vignettes. In his article on Russian émigré artists (DAPA Winter 1989) A.L. de Saint-Rat comments about Père Castor books: "If a break was to be made in format and style, Exter was to make it in the grandest manner. [The panoramas] are masterpieces of graphic design unsurpassed to this day." [Attributes: Hard Cover]
