Sold: Complete Set 16 Russian Wizard of Oz Volkov Postcards with Cover, Art by Vladimirsky


Out of stock


Here is a 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 definitely originals, not reprints.

Condition is good for the cards with light wear, all but two unused and those two have childish writing on the back. The cover sleeve is fair, with some tears and childish writing again on the back. Hard to find complete in any condition, especially with the sleeve! Check out this Youtube video I made a while back for more info on this cards.
