Description

Here is a rare complete set of 16 Russian Wizard of Oz postcards, with the original cover sleeve! Leonid Vladimirsky illustrated the postcards as well as the Ozzy “Magic Land” book series by Alexander Volkov on which Russian children were raised. The tri-fold cover features Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin-Man and the Lion. These are large cards, about 4″ x 6″ in size. I believe they are from 1962 based on the numbering on the sleeve, and these are the originals, not reprints.

Condition is very good for the cards with light wear (unused). The cover sleeve is VG-, with some wear along fold lines, a little rubbing and a small chip at base of front . Hard to find in this condition, especially with the sleeve, and a very attractive set! Check out this Youtube video I made a while back for more info on this cards.
