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.

Wow this is the real cowboy. The cowboy without a horse is what I call him. He is the star of the show. My friends love him. I am from New Mexico. I know cowboys. This marionette is the best for me

This puppet has surpassed my expectations. This Dracula is going to have his own show. My friends fall over laughing and enjoy the shows that I do for them.
