OLDĜICH HLAVSA
BOOKS TYPOGRAPHIA 1 (1976),
2 (1981), 3 (1986)

The book designer Oldĝich Hlavsa was the guru of typography in the sixties and seventies, and was one of the few Czech designers who was well known abroad. He influenced an entire generation of graphic designers. In his key threevolume book Typograhia, a work that has yet to be surpassed, he summarised his innovative views on book design.
