Prague: V. Horák a spol, 1933. Octavo (20.8 × 14.8 cm). Original printed wrappers; 38 pp. Very good.
Scarce catalog of an exhibit of recent Baltic book art and illustration held in Prague. It was jointly organized by the Czech-Estonian Society, the Group of Lithuanian Students, the Czech-Latvian Society, as well as the Central Library of Prague. Given the mutual influence of Baltic, and especially Latvian and Estonian book design of the modernist and avant-garde period, the exhibition sheds a fascinating light on the encounter between these two cultures. The list of Latvian books exhibited, in particular, contains many avant-garde titles. KVK, OCLC show the copies at the Czech and Polish National Libraries.
