The publication offers a new look at the beginnings of production in the Moravian Tapestry Manufactory, one that contextualizes the age, artistic trends and cultural relations of the early twentieth century. The names of the architects and designers discussed in the book (Jan Kotěra, Dušan Jurkovič, Hanuš Schweiger, among others) suggest that this is not merely a historical account of and isolated tapestry establishment, but rather an enriching insight into Czech textile art created between 1898 and 1938.

This book has been published by the Moravian Tapestry Manufactory and the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague to accompany the exhibition held in the Museum from the 26th of June to the 21th of September 2008
