Eugen Wiškovský) Fototorst edition The oeuvre of the Czech avant-garde photographer Eugen Wiškovský (1888-1964) is not great in terms of number or thematic scope, but in its originality, conceptual depth and formal mastery. In his early works made in the style of New Objectivity, Wiškovský sought visually compelling forms in objects seemingly lacking aesthetic qualities, which he manipulated by cut-outs, a change of scale or inventive work with light. In his dynamic, diagonal compositions using unusual angles of shots, he was one of the most radical exponents of Czech Constructivist photography. His landscape photography also boasts great originality. Of equal importance are Wiškovský’s treatises on photography theory, in which he applied aspects from the psychology of forms. A number of the photographs reproduced in the book come from UPM’s collection.
Shapes and Spaces: The Collection of the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague) For the first time in its history, in the year of its 120th anniversary, the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague had the opportunity to introduce masterpieces from its collections in Portugal. With an introductory essay by Professor José de Monterroso Teixeira and texts by Daniela Karasová and other UPM curators, the book was published to accompany an exhibition hosted by the Museum of Portuguese Decorative Arts in Lisbon. It features unique objects made of glass, ceramics and porcelain, as well as furniture, jewellery, metals, textiles, clothing and graphic art dating from the Renaissance to the Art Nouveau periods, with a focus on Central Europe. The selection attests to the diversity and wealth of the Prague museum’s collections and documents how decorative art contributed to shaping Central Europe's cultural identity. The publication was issued by the Fundação Ricardo do Espírito Santo Silva, Lisboa in the cooperation with the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague to accompany the exhibition in the Fundação Ricardo do Espírito Santo Silva, Lisboa, Autumn 2005.

Never before Seen in Prague) Published to accompany an exhibition of posters advertising Prague entertainment venues, the book traces the years 1900–1930, as Prague gradually changed from a provincial town into a modern, self-confident city and eventually into the capital of an independent state. Poster art is a unique testimonial to this transformation: at the turn of the century, lithographic posters became an integral part of Prague’s streets and alleyways, later than in such metropolises as Paris, London and New York, yet virtually at the same time as the monarchy’s capital Vienna. With some exceptions, the Depression put an end to the era of the pictorial poster in 1930. The posters present diverse forms of entertainment in Prague: night clubs, social functions, balls, soirées organized by various voluntary associations, circus shows and magician performances, and – last but not least – the film industry. The publication was issued by the Municipal House in Prague in cooperation with the Museum of Decorative Arts to accompany the exhibition held in the Municipal House, September 2005 – January 2006.
