    Our catalogue brings to you for the first time exciting look in modern slovak poetry. Includes unique magazines, forbidden books, signed ones. Movement started to be called "Catholic modern" begin in 30`s. After II.World War most of the poets exiled and were active in exil, those who stay could not publish. At the beginning, poets saw their ideal in Bremond`s La Poésie pure, later more books were influenced by surrealists. During the war nationalism was the idea of several books. Slovakia is a small religious country. It was always hard for young poets to publish. That is why you can find communist Avant-garde in same editions with the catholics, religious text with interesting modern bookcovers. I wish you to enjoy this new view in eastern Europe book publishing. Catalogue is only in Slovak language, we gladly help with the translation upon request.
