Twelve Days of Christmas by Vladimir Vasil'evich Vagin
In this festive rendition of the popular Christmas counting song, Vladimir Vagin captures the lavish Christmas celebrations of old with timeless elegance. His detailed, jewellike paintings reflect a unique mix of cultures: the medieval Russian flavor of his native land and the Vermont countryside of his adopted home. This exquisitely crafted parade of ladies, lords, pipers, and drummers is sure to become a cherished part of holiday merrymaking for generations to come. The book includes a musical arrangement and an afterword about the song's origin as a cumulative memory game.
