Karel Teissig

This recent article by Rick Poynor prompted me to order a book that I'd had my eye on for a while, Marta Sylvestrová's Czech Film Posters of the 20th Century. It arrived in the post today, and I think it's the largest book I now own - if there are no further posts on Cardboard Cutout Sundown, it may be that my girlfriend has used it to try and knock some sense into me.

Some of my favourites in the book are by Karel Teissig (1925-2000), and you can see many more of his designs at Terry Posters, who specialise in Czech film posters. There are also several examples of his book covers and illustrations (below).


Also at Terry Posters: Bohumil Štěpán, who's one of my favourite finds at A Journey Round My Skull.
