"Calendar for 1930", published by the Knigospilka ("Book Society" or Cooperative Cultural Center), in Ukrainian.

Nice artwork to the cover. The calendar is full of "life advice" on how to run a small backyard farm in rural area with detailed list of work to be done in a particular month, all mixed with communist propaganda. There is also an obligatory list of notable events and jubilees for each month. Interestingly, there are several male and female first names for every day of the month - some of them pretty exotic - apparently a quick advice on naming a newborn. In the back (pp. 26 - 62) is an explanation of all things really important in life, such as Soviet social organization, brief history
