Using Google Translate:

Jiří Šalamoun, born in Prague in 1935, is, alongside Květa Pacovská and Peter Sís, one of the best-known contemporary Czech illustrators. His images have interpreted and commented on, among others, stories by Charles Dickens, Fenimore Cooper and JRR Tolkien, as well as poems by his compatriot Pavel Šrut. However, it was his collaboration in the series of cartoons Maxipes Fík...which made him famous, not only among children in his country, but also abroad where all of his work has been rewarded with numerous prizes.

A joyful artist and anxious spectator of the long Czech 20th century, Jiří Šalamoun is also a remarkable typographer, a creator of theater and exhibition posters, active in the world of publishing and in the press. So many aspects of a kaleidoscopic work that this abundantly illustrated monograph invites you to discover.
