Lázeňský host


Lázeňský host

Praha, Česká republika

This record is not filled by the magazine’s editor.
„The magazine’s brief has always been a non-literary one. A traditional form is a diary entry and the regularity of repeating given subjects. Lázeňský host is one of the oldest samizdats (and probably the only one surviving). It was started in the 1970s by people seeking jobs that bring loneliness,” from a definition by the authors on the web. Indeed, most of the content of Lázeňský host consists of monastic diaries of an obscure order Regula Pragensis, almost unreadable outside the brotherhood, including cases when the current graphic designer Jan Čumlivski does not use Gothic print. As the main principle of the order is play, the content can be anything, even an Austro-Hungarian cookbook extracted from novels. Lázeňský host is issued for the spa colonnade twice a year in a numbered print run of 300 copies.
