Jar-Ptitza [Жаръ-Птица; Fire-Bird] was a Russian emigre literary magazine published in Berlin in 14 numbers between August 1921 and January 1926. It was printed on three kinds of paper and offered illustrations by Russian artists. Editor and publisher: A.E. Kogan.

Jar-Ptitza was a worthy successor of legendary The Golden Fleece and The World of Art, published in Russia in early XX century. It is no mere chance that Jar-Ptitza appeared in Berlin. In early 1920s, large Russian community had settled in Germany. Hyperinflation turned the country into the publishers’ paradise, as printing was much cheaper there than in any other European country. This caused real boom of Russian books: about 50 Russian publishing houses worked in Berlin only. [1]
