La Librería de los escritores (The Writer’s Library) tells the story of a society (of the same name), founded by writer Mijaíl Osorguín in Moscow in 1918, which allowed culture-thirsty writers, artists and students to express themselves freely and preserve their cultural heritage, via secret meetings and the small-circulation publication of their word. This new literature collection revolves around the theme of books. The first book is a small typeset volume with a recycled beige slipcover, featuring each author’s name at the same point size as the book’s title, yet kept treated to his or her own paper stock, with Réminov’s assorted-sized illustrations tipped into Osorguín’s text glossy Chromolux 700, and Tsvetaieva’s poems reproduced in their own sunny yellow-papered section.
