Another amazing early monthly journal.
"Zhar Ptitka". It's like the russian version of Verve, only perhaps not as much attitude.
1921 in Russia was not a good place to have a ballsy attitude I guess.
Never the less, cover by Bilibin, reproductions (heliograph printed) by Arkhipov and other great ones.
This stuff was seriously ahead of it's time. (I think..what do I know about russian post revouloutionary art?)
