Books are Difficult to Display: Libor Fára (1925-1988)
November 6, 2014 – January 17, 2015
An open cycle of exhibitions called Knihy se těžko vystavují (Books are Difficult to Display) highlights the work of leading designers and typographers mainly of the period after World War II. The project is organised by the Elpida Society and the Archive of Fine Arts that provided most of the exhibits. This exposition is dedicated to Libor Fára, a painter, sculptor, stage designer etc. An important part of his work is represented by book design, characteristic of significant but simply functional typography, an extraordinary feeling for photography and reproduction, economically minimalist work with colours, and geometry The display features not only Fára´s book design but also several of his exceptional posters.
