Notes: Chernikov readily adopted Futurist, Supremist and Constructivist principles, the latter, reflected here in both the book's design and the style of the illustrations. Despite the international reputation he garnered from his illustrated books, few of his projects were ever realized due, in part, to Soviet authority suspicion.
