All three volumes were designed by Karel Teige (1900-1951), the outstanding Czech graphic designer, typographer and photographer. Teige was a formative member of the avant- garde movement "Devětsil" and served as a key conduit for West European avant-garde and surrealist tendencies to the Czech Republic in the interwar period, in addition to his own prolific work as an editor, graphic designer, and theoretician.
