2016/3 - Czech Avant-Garde & Bibliophily, 43 itemsPublished on 12 Sept. 2016
I am glad to present my new short list Digital Delights, which in a sporadic series will present exclusive selections of my stock.
Edition no. 1 contains 43 items connected to Czech Avant-Garde and bibliophily from the 1920s to the 1940s. As follows you will discover beautiful books designed by Josef Čapek, Otakar Mrkvička, František Muzika, Vít Obrtel, Jindřich Štyrský, Ladislav Sutnar, Karel Teige, Toyen and others. Some of them are unique, mostly numbered preferential editions bearing signatures, dedications and even original art work by authors and/or artists. Two of the offered books are additionally bound in fine artist's bindings.
A special section (nos. 37-42) is dedicated to the book artist Karel Svolinský and partly also to the book binder Karel Dudešek. A little surprise awaits you at the end of the list: 3 postcards with repros of surrealist collages by Štyrský for his porn story »Emilie«.
Nos. 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 13, 18, 19, 24, 28 and 30 are already sold. (7.12.16)
