The Art of the Russian Matryoshka by Rett Ertl

Nesting one inside the other, wooden matryoshka dolls are a favorite toy in Russian homes and are collected by enthusiasts around the world. Illustrated throughout with color photographs, this volume tells the story of matryoshka production from the doll's first appearance in the toy making center of Sergiev Posad in 1899 through its contemporary interpretations by entrepreneurial artists. Each step in the manufacturing process—from the cutting of logs through the final lacquering of the dolls—is described in detail. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
