SATIRIKON, a daily satiric journal, published in 1908-14, with the editorial office located at 9 Nevsky Prospect. It succeeded the Strekoza journal. Published by М. G. Kornfeld, its editors were at various times: А. А. Radakov to А. Т. Averchenko, P. P. Potemkin and Kornfeld. Caricature artists Radakov, N.V. Remizov (pseudonym Re-Mi), A. E. Yakovlev, A. A. Yunger, poets and writers Averchenko, Teffi, Sasha Cherny, V. V. Knyazev, A. S. Bukhov et al. contributed to the Satirikon. The journal had also published works of Leonid Andreev, Isaak Babel, Alexander Blok, А. S. Grin, Alexander Kuprin, Alexey Tolstoy et al. The Satirikon which appeared at a time of political reaction stood out for its radicalism and mocked many prominent statesmen and cultural figures, turning it into the most sought after satiric favourites of its day. Thematic issues enjoyed special success. Due to disagreements in the editorial body part of the staff took on publishing the Novy Satirikon journal (1913-18; with Averchenko as editor, from July 1917 - Bukhov, its editorial office located at 98 Nevsky Prospect). In 1931 an attempt to resume the publication of Satirikon in Paris was made (a few issues came out with a contribution of Ivan Bunin, Alexander Kuprin, V. F. Khodasevich, Don-Aminado and Sasha Cherny, followed shortly after by the periodicals' termination).
