Product Description

Is it a stork? Is it a pair of scissors? It’s this or that, depending on our look. 47 years after its original release in Czechoslovakia, with the title Co is Cemu podobá? here’s another timeless book. Overlaying a streaked acetate on the illustration and moving it either to the left or right we find two different images on the same page: a stork is transformed into a pair of scissors, a butterfly into a book, a saw in a crocodile, etc. and vice versa. This technique, widely used in Eastern Europe between the decades of 60 and 80, was created by Czech artist Jirí Kolár and is known as Rollage. This or that? reveals itself as a great example of contamination between artistic experimentation and editorial design. Bruaá

AUTHORS

Painter, graphic designer and illustrator, Dobroslav Foll was born on the 15 June 1922 in Prague and dies in the same city in 18 January 1981. Foll initiates his studies at Prague’s School of Decorative Arts, continuing later at the Academy of Fine Arts. He becomes artistic director of several publishing houses, illustrates several books, makes caricatures and works as a graphical designer. Independent artist since 1955, he starts an intense activity in different domains: children books, movie posters, paintings, etc. He becomes one of the founding members of one of the most remarkable artistic groups that ever appeared in that country: Radar group. With a curious spirit, original and inventive, Dobroslav Foll gives us with “Isto ou aquilo?” a good example of his fantasy and humour.
