Abstract

The nature of the phenomenon of the «beautiful book» is usually described in the categories of style. This allows to clearly identify the problems that in our time stand in the way of Russian art critic of book graphics. The origins of these problems lie in a constructive (functional) approach to it provided by William Morris’s theory of the “beautiful book”. In Russia this approach has been established due to Ivan Bilibin and it remains the main way to consider the book graphics in Russian art study.
