Russian Style

Every country or culture has it's own stereotypical symbols. Flashlight pictures from art, science, people or traditions become icons, and stand for the map of feelings of a culture. The Russian editor of L'Officiel Evelina Khromtchenko, has now published a great book that contains lots of Russian symbols, called "Russian Style" (Assouline, 60$). From Yuri Gagarin to Bakst, from Babushkas to Shapkas, and not to forget Tolstoy, or designers like Alena Akhmadulina, the icon-collection of this book is wide. Lots of symbols of a country, many people still don't know much about.
