‘Mother cleaned the window’ is a series of verse-lines for index cards for which Lev Rubinshtein (born 1947) became famous. For this 83 verse-lines Goppe choose a simple printing design and, to underline that this collection was written in 1987, added a small illustrated Soviet children’s book from the 1980s to the central pages. A colour lithpgraph adorns the cover. The book has special wrappings with water-colours that show a slightly satirical image of how collectors had to find a place to stay in Moscow in order to collect and transport artist’s books.
