Praise

…a stunning book whose images abduct the reader into a world most of us only see in dreams.—Evan Rail, The Prague Post

A wonderful collection of images that will be unfamiliar to most readers. Highly recommended.

Christian Perring, Ph.D., Metapsychology

An unbelievable collection from some of the best relatively unknown photographers of the early avant-garde.

Taylor Holland, The Austin Chronicle

Now translated into English, this important book…expands our knowledge of the history of photography of this critical period.

B&W Magazine

..one cannot but be startled by the depth and importance of the Czech tradition.

Mark Pohlad, History of Photography

The scholarship of the six contributors is formidable and will not soon be superseded.

Alan G. Artner, Chicago Tribune

…this book reveals the body of work that paved the way for later Czech photographers.

Mark Wojahn, Rain Taxi Review of Books

This remarkable collection will repay hours of study and belongs in the library of anyone who seriously studies modern photography.
