The Return of Dmitry Samarov
In Conversation with Ben Terrall

Soviet Stamps, cover

Dmitry’s new book is Soviet Stamps, wherein he recounts how he became an artist. Through written vignettes, artwork, and family photos the book charts Samarov's emigration from the USSR in 1978, on to his attempts to fit into American society and peripatetic attempts to earn a living, while continuing to create artwork. Published in a limited-edition, foil-stamped hardcover run of 800 signed-and-numbered copies.
Dmitry will be in conversation with Ben Terrall, author of the locally sourced underground ‘zine Namaste, Motherf**ker!
