I discovered this charming work by Czech Illustrator Stanislava Cervenkova. Sadly there isn’t anything written about her that I can find online. There are many different styles of illustration that she created and this is definitely my favourite.

Her work is dated in the late 50’s/ early 1960, such calm, yet colourful work.

Great use of check fabric in these coats.

This book is dated 1962 and looks to be about working life in the countryside .

More work in a very different style again. Bold bright colours and defined lines around shapes.

      Oops thanks Jan, well that’s me off to a good start ! Pity there isn’t even a small biography written about her, I would have had a little more to go on.

    Hello, I’ve recently discovered this blog post as I love everything mid-century, books and illustrations inclusive. I actually own a copy of “Ivana na prodej” book. Used condition, without the original cover unfortunately…..All of the illustrations inside the book are fine. Would you be interested?

    Kind regards,
