"The present publication of Russian folk tales is a remarkable example of this interesting facet of Russian art. The illustrations are by Alexei Orleansky, a painter of the Palekh school. Working with a variety of materials, in 1999 he produced a series of original miniatures illustrating traditional stories. I am sure that his iridescent Fire-Bird colors will bring joy to many readers, young and old." (Abram Raskin, art scholar).
