images may be added again at some stage - too many images "stolen" and used uncredited without any notice. Will rethink the whole project - password protected access may be an option, paid subscribing another or taking it completly offline also thinkable. But still undecided...

Hardcover, photos by Milada Einhornova, text by Pavel Kohout, design by Pravoslav Sovak, printrun 20.000. Title translates to „They called him Frkos“.

"The “talking” typography and the idiosyncratic, almost enigmatic design of the book are the work of artist Pravoslav Sovák (born 1926), who came to the west in 1968. He is also responsible for the coloured constructivist patterns and surfaces as well as the bold framing of Einhornová’s pictures. This would be Sovák’s second collaboration with both of them, his first being an equally remarkable book about the spa town of Marianske Lazne (1960), photographed by Milada’s husband, Erich Einhorn." (Thomas Wiegand)
