The article explores the relationship between modernist aesthetics and the area of children’s books production in Western Europe. Many leading Avant-garde artists and writers were involved in making books for the young audience. In this field they playfully experimented with radical (artistically and socially) ideas and often revealed such facets of their art that were not well articulated in their main works for adults. The infantile mindset of the Avant-garde as a whole was one of such features, and this aspect of European modernism is discussed in the article.

Key words: Avant-garde, Modernism, Western European art, children’s books, picturebooks, book design, book illustration, German art, French art, Russian émigré artists

This is the second part of the article that explores the relationship between modernist aesthetics and the area of children’s books production in Western Europe and America. Many leading Avant-garde artists and writers were involved in making books for the young audience. In this field they playfully experimented with radical (artistically and socially) ideas and often revealed such facets of their art that were not well articulated in their main works for adults. In the centre of the publication is the so called “production book”, the genre of the children’s books about machines and mechanisms and about how things are made. It corresponded with the idea “here and now” proclaimed by the American educator Lucy Sprague Mitchell whose books where popular not only in the USA but in the USSR as well.
