Jiří Svoboda

Back to the Czech posters/book covers. I haven't managed to track down much of Jiří Svoboda's work, but from what I've seen his use of collage and texture is impressive, and I'd be intrigued to know how some of these were made. The examples at Terry Posters are all from the 1960s; I haven't found any later designs and I've no idea if he's still around, although there is a film director of the same name.


  1. Oh I LOVE that Becket poster. I'm reminded of the illustrations in the 60s of the Provensons!

  2. I really like the top two in particular. I've been trying to figure out how they could have been made - screen printed, perhaps?
