Jolanta Lysková


Illustrations from 'Jak Husa Malovala' a book of verse written by Jana Moravcova  in 1969. Illustrated by Jolanta Lysková in a fantastic, bold graphic woodcut style referencing folk art traditions of Eastern Europe but blending these with fabulous mid twentieth century design. Jolanta was born in 1939 and studied at Prague University of Applied Arts from 1959-1965. She has illustrated for children and adults, and worked for magazines; Sluníčko and Mateřídoušek.
