Ex Librises by A. Tychina


Anatoly Tychina (1897–1986), one of the major book designers in Belarus in the 20th century, played a significant role in the development of Belarusian national art. He worked in such areas of the graphic arts as book design, easel graphics, newspaper and magazine design, and ex-libris bookplates. His works display expressive realistic forms, contrasts of color and volume, as well as a unique national character. Ex-libris design flourished in Belarus in the 1920s. With help from the Belarusian Society of Bibliophiles, a small edition of 200 copies of Еx Librises by A. Tychina was published in 1928. The book contains 16 actual-size bookplates by Tychina. The illustrations are preceded by an introduction by Alexander Shliubsky, a Belarusian historian, ethnographer, and folklorist.
