The International Institute of Social History in Holland have a display of covers from 54 childrens books from the Soviet era of the 1920s and 1930s - in some cases they have another page from the book as well. There are also 2 fully digitized books available.
Previously I posted a couple of examples from McGill University's exhibition and I think there are only a couple of repeated images in the Dutch site. The author/illustrator/year are in each of the above URLs. Excellent stuff.
