An exclusive bound book belongs to a unique exhibit. The kind that allows us to relive our once in a lifetime experience of seeing the original prints of Mucha’s posters, over and over again with the turn of each page. Therefore, a grandly prepared separate publication is being published for the exhibition, which is not only a testament to the many years of Ivan Lendl’s passion for collecting that have brought together a one of a kind collection, but mainly to the most significant artistic legacy of Alphonse Mucha – posters, decorative panels, calendars, advertisements on drinks, industrial products and various social and cultural events. The book, providing almost the complete works of Mucha in this field, features reproductions of a number of preparatory drawings and sketches found today in various international collections from Japan through France and Italy to the United States. Thus it allows us to follow Mucha’s artistic growth step by step and significantly enhances the still fragmentary knowledge of his work. The book can serve as a textbook on the transformation and formation of modern mass advertising or as an incentive to aesthetic contemplation over the eternal beauty of Mucha’s boundless, pure artistic creativity that continues to fascinate new generations. Book in 30 x 28 cm format with 320 printed pages.
