While exploring Russia’s book stores and markets, you might stumble upon a bunch of curiously titled and designed covers. These books are written by Russian fiction writers and provide a glimpse into their minds. But, the books are in high demand in equally twisted minded folks in Russia. Apparently, there is a Vkontakte community “Stupid book covers of Russian fiction”, that collects such pieces of art. The community has around 3,5K subscribers, who share “gems” of Russia’s modern literature. Here are some of them.
And the back cover says what the book says about: Stalin is resurrected in a parallel Universe, where his Red Army fights against man-eating Dragons.
People actually buy and read these books. Wonder what’s going in their heads after reading these fiction books. You can explore the rest of them on Vkontakte.
