"Encyclopedia of Desires.
If You Want
to Be Good-Looking"
The book is written by Eugen Kluev,
illustrated by Polina Kalashnikova
There are many different encyclopedias in the world, but there is no encyclopedia of desires! What would you do if one day you wished to become beautiful, powerful, curly-haired or even useful?
One of the brightest Russian literary men – Eugen Kluev – gives his recipes in the form of absurd poems!
Many of us are so concerned with becoming rich, wise and in some cases witless! 39 wishes turn into 39 poetic instructions full of nonsense, polysemy, jokes and life anecdotes.
Farce drawings, schemes, diagrams, comments, footnotes complete this encyclopedia of desires.
