The Initials
March 29 - May 7, 2023


The exhibition is the result of a joint project of two studios of Ladislav Sutnar Faculty of Design and Art, University of West Bohemia, Pilsen. The project was led by Renáta Fučíková, Kristina Fišerová and Rostislav Vaněk.
The word Initial comes from Latin Initium, a beginning. The Guide to Illuminated Manuscripts says that it is an enlarged and decorated letter introducing an important section of a text. Initials can have a different level of significance. Among the most common forms of initials are decorated, anthropomorphic, zoomorphic, zoo-anthropomorphic, gymnastic, inhabited or historiated. In the collections of the National Library of the CR you can find a large number of examples which prove the transformation of historical periods, styles and handwriting of both known and unknown authors.
The Initial was the theme assigned to students of the two studios. The display features some of their works.
