Fedor Stepanovich "Rojan" Rojankovsky was a Russian artist best known for book illustrations, particularly children's books, especially his work for Little Golden Books. He emigrated from Russia to Paris in 1925, and this advertising brochure was one of his first major works produced in French. The illustrations draw on Constructivist and Art Deco inspirations. Very scarce; as of January 2019, WorldCat locates only a single holding in a North American institution. Book ID: 48996
