Kubistická Praha – Cubist Prague is a guidebook to early 20th-century architecture in Prague, the Czech Republic. Prague became one of the leading centres of European Cubism in the 1910s, and the international influences were applied in architecture, furniture design, and even stage design.
The book introduces the main architectural sites that represent the Cubist school-of-thought and explains the main principles of Cubism. The book is richly illustrated with mostly black&white photographs and some architectural drawings and art images. There’s also a diagrammatic map of Prague to help the reader to plan the visit. The texts in Kubistická Praha – Cubist Prague are in both English and Czech.
The copy in stock is in good condition; there’s only some minor shelf wear on the covers and some small stains on some of the pages.
