Květa Pacovská (1928 - present) - This very talented and highly recognized lady has, in the history of children’s books illustrations, acquired a very special place for heroriginal artistic style. The critics appreciate the connection of geometry and naivety of old folk toys, the combination of drawing and painting with typography. We can see the close tie of her illustrations to animated films and also the application of optical multiplication and phasing in illustrations.

In addition to illustrating nearly sixty books, Ms. Pacovská had numerous solo exhibitions in Prague, Paris, London, Munich, Padua, Tokyo and Taipei, to name a few.
