About the book and the project
/ The book Jde o to, aby o něco šlo, typograf Oldřich Hlavsa (The point is to make a point Oldrich Hlavsa — typographer ) presents for the first time in sum and completely the extensive work of graphic and book designer Oldrich Hlavsa (1909-1995), whose work forms a crucial chapter in the history of graphic design in the second half of 20th century in Czech Republic. In spite of this fact, there was only partial information about Hlavsa´s work apart from its own four publications, until now. I didn´t only design the book Jde o to, aby o něco šlo, but first of all I was the initiator of the project and also the editor of the book. Hlavsa´s monograph was prepared for five years. I have found, discovered and compiled all of the pictorial content, wrote his detailed curriculum vitae and theoretical study, prepared the extensive lists of his typographical work, prepared the selection of his correspondence with leading Czech and foreign personalities of graphic design in the 20th century (L. Sutnar, A. Frutiger, H. Zapf) and provided grants to finance this publication. The book is supplemented by web www.oldrichhlavsa.cz, which also has an english version and where you can find more informations about the book and also Oldrich Hlavsa himself.
