The son of Czar Saltan travels the sea in a barrel


Some of these I pick just because they are pretty and make me happy.

Pushkin’s
Tale about Czar Saltan and his son Gvidon
1905, illustrator Ivan Bilibin
from Poemas del río Wang, seen at Uncertain Times

Mama: great idea. It would look best on someone with a fairly wide back, between their shoulder blades.

Steph: nice!

I used to try to paint pictures like this. I just love it so much.

There's a certain style of Russian illustration that just really moves me.
