A Czech translation of a fictional travelogue, written in 1926 by the French modernist Paul Morand (1888-1976). The photo-montage cover design was done by the celebrated graphic artist Cyril Bouda (1901-1984) in the style of Czech poetism, as a "picture poem." First introduced by the artist Karel Teige and poet Vitseslav Nezval in 1923, this avant-garde movement dominated Czech book design throughout the interwar period.
