‘The Book of Letters’ was born from our admiration for the beauty of these letters. We wanted to play a big game and so we have invited to the stage the heroes, which have never been seen by spectators before. The letters have appeared here in all their gorgeousness: large, material like bread, and lovely like birds. They have been assembled and turned into words and sentences – both for reading and for scrutinizing. 

A complex of large-scale volumetric compositions is the main way of the existence of letters in The Book. Here their plastic qualities are becoming more important than grammar, and their color subjugates everything up to the smallest details of punctuation. It can be said that each letter is a part of ornamental pattern here. And this ornamental pattern can be read by viewer. And of course, don't forget that a typographic letter is a mirror image of common letter, and the only way to read is to read backwards, from left to right.

Each art-object of ‘The Book of Letters’ has two parts: a big composition from old wooden typography letters and a text about letters. What are these texts about? About love, espionage, war, Cyrillic alphabet, God’s name, and magic bird.


7 pm: Matt Henderson Ellis: Keeping Bedlam at Bay in the Prague Cafe 

The author presents his newly released book. Don’t miss this opportunity! About the book

Keeping Bedlam at Bay in the Prague Café

"[G]enuine imagination and an energetic wit. Ellis vividly re-creates the atmosphere of a city in the throes of transformation as well as the American Quixotes who populate this new frontier." — Publishers Weekly

"An ode to expatriate living, culture clashes, and the heady days of early 1990s Europe, this novel is a manic, wild ride. . . . [D]arkly comic . . .immersive, nostalgic, and thoroughly enjoyable." — Booklist

"Former barista John Shirting from Chicago, an expat in the hallucinatory Prague of the Nineties, stands in the good company of Ignatius J. Reilly, Chauncey Gardener, and Forest Gump.” — Andrei Codrescu
