One day i've got an email from Masha Timirbaeva with a job offer to illustrate the book. Later she wrote me that it will be a gift for her father and that look of the book should give an impression of a certain time in Moscow,
certain time in russian poetry, filmmaking and songwriting and actually her father's youth.
This is a collection of articles by Vyacheslav Timirbaev, which he published in a russian newspaper «My Capital. News». The articles deal with russian poets and poetry in general, which passed through the author's life and left its mark in him. A lot of the poets he knew personally. His selection of poetry represents that time and spirit of poetic Russia in the middle of twentieth century.
I was asked to do 12 Illustration, Cover and inner Cover and the Initials for each chapter.
I was pretty happy to do this, and now that i have it in my hands... i realized, that it's the first real book i've ever illustrated. And i think, it looks really great.
