Book covers

Both cover designs by Zbyněk Sekal, Faulkner published in 1963 and Styron in 1962.

Purely typograhic Zbyněk Sekal, published in 1963.

Cover by Miloslav Fulín, published in 1965. I liked the way he played with letters in the name of the writer: Mrožek. As the title says: Mrožek or Mrožek, there is a sence in having them look different each time.

Miloslav Fulín, published in 1967. I don't know much about this designer, he seems to be more a typoghrapher than a painter. He belonged to the most renown ones at the time, won some awards etc. The last book (Paradisso interrotto, anthology of the Italian poetry), unlike the preceding ones, is nicely done inside as well. The drawing on the cover is actually by Concetto Pozzati from 1965, repeated inside of the book as well.
