New Year's Night of Sputniks (1967)


A strange and yet seasonal children's book for New Year's Eve. This is a long Estonian poem with illustrations by Olev Soans. His style of art is a strange technical collage. The images are beautifully drawn but also slightly disturbing (not unlike the past year). Happy New Year and the rise of hope.

New Year's Night of Sputniks. Helvi Jurisson. Drawn by Olev Soans. Tallinn : Eesti Raamat. 19 p. 13.5 cm x 19.5 cm, 1967.
