Museum Delivery

Museum of One Book delivers an opportunity to complement the “Myths, legends and fairytales of Udmurt folk” published in Ustinov, 1986. There are stories about people, nature and supernatural marvelously illustrated by Mensadyk Garipov. This oral heritage had been never imaged before and it seems to be that no other artist has never been so deep into udmurt world view.

As a contemporary “conterritory” step we open this book for a wider horizon - international and interpersonal. While it describes the spirits living everywhere around, we invite to discover this book as a territory for the personal spirit, going through and probably leaving there a trace of individual existence.
