Gulliver's Travels to Prague

Bohumil Stepan's illustrations for Gulliverovy Cesty (Gulliver's Travels),
Prague 1968







I'm not sure who was responsible for this binding illustration





half of the title-page spread





































































surely Haeckel in the background







"Max Ernst and Saul Steinberg meet Jonathan Swift in Prague."


I haven't found much info on Bohumil Stepan (1913–85), though based on his style I'll guess that he and Adolf Hoffmeister (1902–73) were from the same circle of artists. I hope to hunt-and-gather more of his books soon.


I actually started buying these books (Gulliver is from my collection) instead of just "window shopping." God help me.
