PINUS, NATALIIA |
Mul’tiplikatsiia fil’my (Animated films)
Signed photomontage wrappers printed in yellow and black by Nataliia Pinus. 62,  p. 18 x 13 cm. Edition of 15,000. Nataliia Pinus was a poster designer and contributor to magazines of the period. She studied under Klutsis and—like Klutsis—integrated photomontage into her work. Aleksandr Ptushko was an animated film pioneer, sometimes called “the Soviet Walt Disney” for his role in the popularization of the technology. Two years after this book was published, Ptushko began work on an animated adaptation of Gulliver’s Travels—called The New Gulliver—which, when it was released in 1935, was one of the first feature-length animated films. Ink inscription “From the books of Aleksandr Belobokov” on title-page, possibly referring to the Russian director and producer (b. 1943). An additional pencil signature on the title-page has been erased.
