bookmark of the week

There is a Russian magazine celebrating that country's art, literature and culture that I have picked up in the past. Rossica produced a wonderful edition celebrating the 300th anniversary of St Petersburg and is also involved with an annual Russian translated literature prize. This bookmark must have come with a magazine from a few years ago but is a welcome reminder of why it is worth picking up old issues and ordering some new ones.

I've been following your blog since a while ago. It's a pity I have very little time to read at leisure.

Just wanted to say hello and tell you that the image is one of my absolutely favourite paintings by Vrubel, The Seated Demon.
