Czech Book Covers

Stephen Van Dyk, curator of books at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, has uploaded his collection of beautiful Czech book covers from the 1920's and 1930's. Lovely work. The Constructivist cover shown on the left is for the book Almanac 1 of Poetry and Life 1920-1930, published in 1930. Interestingly, Stanislav Odvarko not only designed the cover, but edited the poetry inside as well.
