Lubok is a type of graphics. The prints were cheap pictures with narratives for mass distribution. Lubok is characterized by daring techniques including grotesque and deliberate deformation of the subject. Originally, the main genre of lubok was only a religious one. Only later did artists start to make lubok images to illustrate Russian fairy tales, heroic poems, legends and songs. Many directions of modern mass culture originate from lubok prints that served – for ordinary citizens and rural people – as a newspaper, an icon and a letter book.
