Petersburg Tales

Cod.: STR0030

Petersburg Tales is one of the Strenna editions that Olivetti began producing in 1972 as Christmas gifts: a series of celebrated literary masterpieces, illustrated using specially commissioned drawings by contemporary artists.
It is a collection of short stories by the Russian writer and playwright Gogol, set in Petersburg. From story to story, you find yourself immersed in a world turned upside down, in an enigmatic and surreal city made immortal by the author’s desecrating vision. The collection was compiled after Gogol’s death, combining three short stories previously published in the collection Arabesques (1835) and two immediately following.
The illustrations are by Milton Glaser, one of the leading graphic designers of the contemporary age, who also collaborated with Olivetti on several famous posters.
