Days was an illustrated literary -, art - , and popular scientific monthly published
by the Zemlya i Fabrika (Earth and Factory) publishing house from
1925 to 1930 (no. 9), from 1930 (no. 10) to 1935 by the State
Publishers for artistic Literature and 1936 -1941 by the State
Literature Publishers. The first editor was A. Andreichik. Until 1934 the
covers were printed in full colour and designed by well known
artists as the Stenberg brothers, Yurii Pimenov and Konstantin Rotov.
Pimenov and Rotov worked also as illustrators for the journal. Many
illustrations were photographs by famous photographers as Aleksandr
Rodchenko and Boris Ignatovich. During
1934 the covers lost their bright attractive designs. The magazine
was published until the beginning of the war (June 1941) in a total
of 195 issues (9 issues in 1925, 12 issues each year 1926-1940, and
6 issues in 1941).
