Mýty v nás a kolem nás (“Myth in Us and Around Us”) was initiated as an e-mail conversation between the authors and lately transformed into a book format with original illustrations by Slovak artist Kristian Stupak and art direction from Studio M Nedved.
The texts were composed between March 2021 and March 2022 as a result of mostly e-mail based communication between the co-authors and close collaborators. During this period of time, the Covid pandemic was replaced by a pandemic of war madness after Russia’s aggression against Ukraine. The authors were drawn into the event from the first moment, aware of its fundamental and historical character. The central motif of their reflections are national myths and prejudices.
Book copy is set in Value and Value Serif with lettering on the cover by illustrator Kristian Stupak.
