Frantisek Drtikol "Workbook of Photographs"

This bibliophile edition (in a print run of 300 numbered copies) of the working album with small contact photographs, which Frantisek Drtikol (1883—1961) assembled himself, is another addition to the Drtikol library of the Svet publishing house. This library originated in 2001 and has developed into a separate book series. The original album consists of eighty-three pages, of which seventy-nine are filled with 973 photographs, Drtikol´s notes and twenty pencil sketches of photographic compositions. This album, which we have titled the Workbook of Photographs, offers a unique opportunity to peak into the photographer´s artistic kitchen. It also constitutes an important, comprehensive overview of his work from the late 1920s and early 1930s. For the printing of the book, the special, frequency-modulated, Satin Screening technology, developed by the firm Heidelberg, was used. The distinct qualities of the technology made it possible to approximate the original as closely as possible. Text Stanislav Dolezal and Anna Farova, czech and english. Graphic design Radana Lencova. Printing AF BKK. Bookbinding Daruma Praha.

Printed on Toccata mat paper, 250 g. ISBN 80-902986-7-2
