Jaroslav Blecha, Pavel Jirásek: Česká loutka

Publisher: KANT; 2009, Czech + index in English, 360 pages
ISBN: 978-80-86970-23-3

Official publisher text:

The unique narrative monograph deals with the artistic phenomenon of Czech marionettes, namely the theater of nomadic puppeteers, the family federal puppet theater and creators-artists. It presents marionettes as artifacts with an emphasis on their artistic quality. The book is richly equipped with unique specifically taken photographs by Václav Jirásek, combining informational attention with an artistic view. The book captures the development of Czech puppetry from the oldest and rarest marionette puppets by Mikoláš Sychrovský, through marionettes from the estate of Jan Kopecký and other well-known creators such as Vojtěch Sucharda, Mikoláš Aleš, Jiří Trnka, Karel Svolinský, Ladislav Sutnar and many others. Current authors are represented by, for example, František Skála, Petr Nikl, Petr Kalfus, or Jan Švankmajer.

Hi Katerina, I wanted you to know that Robert received his Marionette today, he loved it and couldn't get over how well it was made and how good the packaging was on it. I want to thank you, from the start it was enjoyable working with you and I will be sure to tell everyone how easy you made it. You never know when you order items from such a long ways away. Thank you again and look forward to working with yoy again. Carol
