An illustrated literary and artistic publication originating in the Soviet Union and later in Russia, established in 1924. Initially a popular youth-oriented magazine in the Soviet era, its circulation soared to over three million copies by the late 1980s. The magazine's initial editions featured cover designs by Alexander Rodchenko, a renowned Soviet artist and a pioneer of constructivism. From its inception, "Smena" included a literary section that debuted books which eventually gained bestseller status. Notably, it published early significant stories by Mikhail Sholokhov and Alexander Green (with Green's initial stories predating the revolution), and poems by Vladimir Mayakovsky in the 1920s.
