About this Item

8.5 x 11.75 inches. stiff paper wrappers. 50 pages. AN EXHIBITION DRAWN FROM THE EMMA LINEN DANA CZECH AVANT-GARDE BOOK COLLECTION. The exhibition that formed the basis for this catalogue was commissioned by the Ginza Graphic Gallery in Tokyo in 1996 and drawn from the Fairleigh Dickinson University Library's Emma Dana Collection, as well as private collections. The exhibition and resulting catalogue examine one stream in Czech publishing between the wars - the work of the avant-garde. The examples on display demonstrate the links between Czech artists and the European avant-garde, which largely inspired them, and also make clear the Czechs' own special contributions to the international avant-garde movement. In addition, the exhibition places the work of the Czech avant-garde in context by the inclusion of a number of works by artists working in more traditional styles. Includes a preface by James Howard Fraser and an introductory comment by Blanka Stehlikova, who also wrote an essay on "The Czech Avant-garde and Book Design: An Overview," and the catalogue of the exhibition. Includes full color reproductions of 89 items. Bookseller Inventory # 128322
