K. Neumann and others. Features samples of works by the leading Soviet caricaturists Deni, Boris Efimov, Mikhail Cheremnykh, D. Moor, V. Vasil'ev, and others. With a preface by the translator, Lubomír Linhart (1906-1980), a film and photography critic who served as the speaker of the Film-foto group of the Left Front in the 1930s.
