M. Šašek at the "Městosvět" exhibition in Prague10. 4. 2015 - 19. 6. 2015
From 10th April to 19th June the Prague gallery Villa Pellé hosts an exhibition of illustrations produced by Miroslav Šašek for his books This is London and This is Hong Kong. Just a few steps away from Hradčanská metro station visitors may take a stroll through the city and enjoy its sights not only as they were once perceived by Šašek himself but also through the eyes of contemporary children’s book illustrators. Exhibits include Michaela Kukovičová’s illustrations for a new publication entitled This is Prague in which she and author Olga Černá explore the question of how Šašek might have seen modern-day Prague, were he here to enjoy the city today. As an added bonus, visitors may browse through a large selection of books on display at the gallery, or else purchase copies for themselves.
