Information

‘Reprinted from the collection of Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague by Fraktaly Publisher. Prague 2003 Design and paper was a series of softcover booklets produced by New York paper wholesaler Marquardt and Co. between 1937 and 1952. Its production ran quarterly for 39 issues and was printed at a very high standard. The series showcased the finest papers for printers, art directors and others in the printing trade. After number 7, issues were primarily devoted to individual artists and designers. Ladislav Sutnar featured in numbers 13 and 19. In issue 13, Sutnar gives a brief and illustrative lesson in information design techniques, namely visual flow. Sutnar’s style is evident in the bold use of colour, dynamic spreads and organizational signposts. Numbers 13 and 19 were accurately reproduced in 2003 from the collections of the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague by Fraktály Publishers.’
