Summary: Sketching on notebook pages, official letterheads, or the margins of various draft documents, prominent Soviet leaders in the 1920s and 1930s amused themselves and their fellows with drawings of one another. This book presents a selection of nearly 200 of these informal sketches, only recently uncovered in secret Soviet files. Funny, original, spontaneous, sometimes vicious or grotesque, the drawings and their accompanying notes are exceptionally revealing of the relationships and mindsets of the Bolshevik bosses at the time of Stalin's rise to power. The album's editors select characteristic drawings by such prominent leaders as Nikolai Bukharin, who depicts himself as 'piggy foxy', Valery Mezhlauk, and Stalin himself, whose recognizable blue pencil remarks appear on some of the works. A number of drawings of unknown authorship are also included. The editors identify the political issues, specific events, or discussions that inspired the drawings, and they provide biographical information about the people who drew and were drawn. The book opens a unique window on Stalin's inner circle, allowing us special access to the powerful men who, despite living in a humourless epoch, developed a special humour of their own.
