Kyiv region


In 1968, a small book was published in Kyiv, bearing the title «Українські Писанки» (“Ukrainian Pysanky”).  The book was neither broad in scope, nor did it introduce any groundbreaking discoveries.  But it was important, and it was groundbreaking, in that it was a book about pysanky, published in Ukraine, in Ukrainian.

It contained 8 Kyivan pysanky, plus 1 ceramic “pysanka” from Kyivan Rus (not pictured here). The names given are often made up by Binyashevsky, a d not those from the original sources.
