Tale of the Military Secret

These incredible kids' book illustrations were a chance find at Bookvart. They're from Tale of the Military Secret (1935) by Arkady Gaidar, and Google translates the illustrator's name as Alexander Danilov, but I can't find any further information at present. If you know anything about these, please leave a comment, I'd very much like to find out more about the artist.

Update: according to Bookvart, these are by Danilov - you can see more of his work here and here - and this edition is from 1987.

  1. Amazing. Bookvart is the best -- and friendly and fluent in English I was happy to discover. Definitely ask him about the illustrator as he might be able to help.
