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. Very good. In protective mylar sleeve.

Scarce undocumented regional avant-garde design, with a striking title page and appealing typographic design throughout (continued on front and rear wrapper flaps). Signed by the author on the dedication leaf. This is copy number 1 of 500 copies, with a special printed dedication leaf to Ladislav Šálek and on heavy paper stock. Curiously, the text is set using a traditional serif, in the Czech bibliophile tradition, while the wrappers are clearly indebted to modern typographic tendencies. Not located in KVK, OCLC.
