Wondrous Ships – Sakharnov

In this post, we will see the book Wondrous Ships by Svyatoslav Sakharnov.

About the book

Ships ply the seven sea. They puff and chug, and the waves slap against their sides as they
hurry on their different ways. One has a tall smokestack, another has a squat one. Some can pull three barges along easily, while others can barely get themselves moving. Each one is different.

Their stories are different, too. Ships are like people, each one wondrous and like no other.

Translated from the Russian by Fainna Solasko and Fantastic drawings by Vladimir Surikov.

Published in 1981 by Progress Publishers.

PS: I have nostalgic memories of the drawings in this book. It is the second Soviet era book that I had read, the first being All About the Telescope. The images of this book fueled my childhood imagination…
