Monuments of Siberia.

Moscow: 1974.

A compelling pictorial document -the dramatic Siberian sky looms large in many photos, and the bare, thick trees and overall feeling of chill are impossible to escape, yet as you pass through them the pictures begin to convey a feeling of warmth and beauty. This study includes many political and army monuments from the Soviet era, and nonetheless manages to be. But with the inherent dignity of almost every photo, even tired Soviet granite-hewn cliches are seen anew. There is a very good selection of army-related memorial monuments, almost all of 20th century vintage.

Hardcover. 8.5"x9.5", 22 pages of Cyrillic text plus a 40 page insert which includes a summary and picture captions in English, French and German plus 385 b/w illustrations, dj dj with a large chip at the spine head.
