Three of Pushkin’s magical fairy tales in new translations, accompanied by Ivan Bilibin’s stunning original illustrations, in a beautiful hardcover edition
 
Alexander Pushkin, Russia’s greatest poet, was fascinated by Russia’s folk history, adapting its fairy tales into captivating poetic versions. In the early twentieth century, the book illustrator Ivan Bilibin likewise fell under the spell of Old Russia, drawing on both folk motifs and art nouveau to produce beautiful illustrations to accompany Pushkin’s poems. This irresistible new edition presents three of Pushkin’s fairy tales (“The Tale of Tsar Saltan,” “The Fisherman and the Fish,” and “The Tale of the Golden Cockerel”) in new versions by the acclaimed translator Antony Wood, alongside Bilibin’s sumptuous original illustrations. The result is an enchanting window into Russian poetry, fairy tales, and magic.
