The Firebird A Russian Folk Tale.


This is the tale of the Tsarevich Ivan and his most noble quest to catch the firebird who has been stealing the golden apples of his father, the Tsar Vyslav Andronovich. With the aid of a kind grey wolf, the young prince completes his quest and wins the heart and hand of his own true love, Tsarevna Elena the Fair. Turn of the century Russian book illustrations are beautiful. This fabric is an homage to Ivan Bilibin, Boris Zvorykin, and all the other great artists who created those timeless classics. This fabric has been made By Cean Irminger a mosaic designer  using Spoonflower. (shop here) It makes me wonder if my Itchycoo stories could be used in a similar way.
