📖🇨🇿 Eduard Bass’ The Chattertooth Eleven, a novel about a father who brought up his eleven sons as a phenomenal football team, is one of the famous Czech works of fiction. It was published in 1922, the same year that saw the establishment of the Czechoslovak Football Association, and has since enchanted generations of young and adult readers. The book was translated into English already in 1943. Its second English edition was published by Karolinum Press in 2008.

V době, kdy učitelé zasedají doma k počítačům a své žáky vidí jen na monitoru, si připomínáme výročí největší osobnosti pedagogiky všech dob. „Učitel národů“ Jan Amos Komenský zemřel v listopadu před 350 lety.

VÝROČÍ LADISLAV SUTNAR (9. listopadu 1897 v Plzni – 13. listopadu 1976 v New Yorku)
Ladislav Sutnar byl také skvělým designérem výstav s mnoha oceněními z předválečných mezinárodních expozic designu. Do USA přišel v roce 1939 kvůli přípravě československé expozice na Světové výstavě v New Yorku. Světová válka a později vývoj v Ceskoslovensku po roce 1948 mu zabránily vrátit se. Zapojil se ale velmi intenzivně do činnosti exilu, graficky upravoval časopis Svědectví a spolupracoval se Svobodnou Evropou. V USA se stal jedním ze zakladatelů moderního grafického vyjádření, jeho kniha Visual Design in Action je považována za jedno z nejpodnětnějších děl o grafickém designu, v roce 1995 mu byla udělena prestižní medaile Asociace profesionálních grafiků AIGA. Na snímcích je v mladém věku, v roce 1934 a 1961.

Folks come to Carnegie Hall!
Folks, Thank you all for coming to our Album Launch. It was truly an amazing experience. Plamen Press is extremely fortunate to have such and amazing group of musicians performing. Lea Gilmore, Yaya, Christine Kharazian, Ian Jones, Tomas Drgon, Bob Rychlik and Ed Hrybyk did an amazing job. It was an evening we will never forget!
IT IS FINALLY HERE!!!. For the first time in history, songs by two of the greatest singer-songwriters the Czech Republic has ever seen, Karel Kryl and Jaromir Nohavica, have been recorded in English. The album is titled Steel Strings and Iron Curtains, and is available for Preorder at http://cart.sunkingrecords.com (site includes samples of Karel Kryl's Salome and Nohavica's Petersburg). The project is a collaboration between SunKing Records in Baltimore and Plamen Press in Washington DC. All songs are sung in English and are performed by The Yehla Collective, an international group of musicians from Armenia, the Czech and Slovak Republics and the US. The album will be officially released on November 17th to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Velvet Revolution. Czech Folk Legend Vladimir Merta wrote about Steel Strings and Iron Curtains: “The production and each musicians’ contribution to this album is remarkable. I always wondered how our music, limited by its language barrier, would be accepted by ordinary folk outside of our borders, when it was predominantly meant for those here at home… These songs prove in today’s day and age that we (Czechs) have an ability to create traditional tunes embraced by a worldwide audience.” For more information about the album check out https://plamenpress.com/steel-strings-iron-curtains/
