Zironka - a collection of songs from Ukrainian (YCCP) films.

This book was published in 1963. I was struck by the subtle (or very obvious) Soviet symbology that seems to pervade it:  the title, the dust cover, the frontpiece...  all that aside, the book does have some wonderful graphics and fonts.

This is a very small book - the dust cover is shown actual size. Those little red stars are the perfect 'CCCP' touch!!!

On the front cover, the red star motif is combined in the flower shape.  It is still a bit too 'CCCP'!  I do like the font.

The frontpiece has a really nice font, and that 'C' is worked very nicely into the shape of the flower stalk.
