Olga Čechová



Olga Čechová's (1925-2010) illustrations for 'Jak Se Z Klublcka Jezek Vyklubal' written by Vitezslav Nezval, published in 1962. a charming story where a ball of wool transformed into a hedgehog. I am still missing last summer's hedgehog and hoping that it has survived the cold winter. Olga graduated from the academy of applied arts in Prague in 1952 and for many years her focus was printmaking, During her career she illustrated over a hundred children's books and had many exhibitions.
