“Sutnar Shapes” is a book for fans of vi-sual culture and design, full of typeface designs, photographs, posters and il-lustrations. The book presents selected works by students of art and design from the Czech Republic and the United States which were created under the guidance of Steven Heller from the School of Visual Arts, New York. The title of the book is homage to the versatile artist Ladislav Sutnar, after whom the Faculty of Design and Art in Pilsen is named. The publication proves that artistic communications and discussions are not limited by geopolitical borders, time, distances or language conventions. The work of students from both sides of the Atlantic can be viewed and contextually compared with regard to theme, visual form and assumed artistic expression.
