The Czech Avant-Garde and Czech Book Design: The 1920s and 1930s; An Exhibition drawn from the Emma Linen Dana Czech Avant-Garde Book Collection

Madison, NJ: Fairleigh Dickinson University, (n.d., ca 1995). First printing. Wraps. Octavo, pp. 50, numerous color illustrations, preface by James Howard Fraser, overview article by Blanka Stehlikova. Cataloguing 89 scarce titles, all illustrated. New. Item #655

Scarce reference work, documenting a period of intense creativity. The Czech avant-garde has been compared to the German movement of the same period, but has been a "well kept secret" in the United States, at least until the publication of this groundbreaking exhibition by James Fraser at Fairleigh Dickinson University. A beautiful, well researched and documented effort, worthy of inclusion in any bookman's collection.
