Radek Pilař I




As sometimes happens, I was researching something to show you this morning and I have ended up finding something else.
I have a great selection of Czech books that I will be sharing this week, but in attempting to find the illustrator of one of them I have stumbled upon  Czech illustrator Radek Pilař (1931-1993) who worked across the artistic disciplines of illustration, graphics, film and painting and produced some fantastic children's books. These illustrations are from "Rumutsuaisu" 1968, and are a combination of hand printing, collage and painting which I thought corresponded with the rubbings of Anna Kocmanová from yesterday.
