This small booklet was prepared in conjunction with an exhibit of traditional pysanky for the Ukrainian Museum.  The cover has several very nice examples of “white” pysanky; the photos within are all black and white.

The book has a simple, basic synopsis of symbolism in the Ukrainian pysanka, with bilingual descriptions of solar, meander, plant animal, geometric and Christian symbols.  It is a handy, concise, little book.
