The Twelve Days of ChristmasBook - 1999
In this festive rendition of the popular Christmas counting song, Vladimir Vagin captures the lavish Christmas celebrations of old with timeless elegance. His detailed, jewellike paintings reflect a unique mix of cultures: the medieval Russian flavor of his native land and the Vermont countryside of his adopted home. This exquisitely crafted parade of ladies, lords, pipers, and drummers is sure to become a cherished part of holiday merrymaking for generations to come. The book includes a musical arrangement and an afterword about the song's origin as a cumulative memory game.
