The Honorably Mention — Awards for The Best Photography Books Published in Eastern Europe in 2013—2014.

The text of this two-volume monograph on the photographic work of František Drtikol was written by the art historian Anna Fárová (1928–2010). The book is the most comprehensive survey of the essential aspects of Drtikol’s oeuvre. The picture material was drawn mainly from the holdings of the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague that houses the world’s largest collection of Drtikol’s photographs, and from several outstanding private collections. Most photographs were printed true to size owing to the format of the book and the use of the Heidelberg frequency-modulated Satin Screening method.

This book was published by the Svět publishing house in collaboration with the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague.
