Czech Regional Avant-Garde

Nahá krása [Naked beauty].; Edice Vzkříšení, sv. 13.

Moravská Ostrava: Lidová knihtiskárna O. Štěpanek a spol., 1934. Octavo (21.3 × 15 cm). Original decorative wrappers; 20, [1] pp. Title page printed in red and black. Signed and inscribed by the author About very good; light soil and foxing to wrappers; in protective mylar.

Scarce undocumented regional avant-garde design, with a striking title page and appealing typographic design throughout (continued on front and rear wrapper flaps). Signed twice by the author, on the title and to bottom of p. 20. This is an unnumbered copy from the print run of 500 copies. Curiously, the text is set using a traditional serif, in the Czech bibliophile tradition, while the wrappers are clearly indebted to modern typographic tendencies.
