The publication was issued by the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague in cooperation with the Argo publishing house to accompany the exhibition held at the Prague Castle, June - September, 2003. The versatile talent of Ladislav Sutnar (1897 -1976) made him part of a whole group of modern European designers and architects who strove to bring quality in ordinary life. Inspired by the Bauhaus school, he lent truly modern design to articles of everyday use, publications, toys, architecture and exhibition installations, advanced professional schooling in graphics to the highest levels of the period and influenced in a major way the lifestyle of prewar Czechoslovakia's burgeoning middle classes.
