A separate section of the exhibition is the unique publications, illustrated by artists whose names are inscribed in golden letters in the history of Ukrainian illustration: M. Wrobel, G. Narbut, F. Krichevsky, M. Samokish, V. Casian … Each of them is a whole era of Ukrainian art, and the books, decorated by them, has long been a rarity.
