Lubomir Longauer

Slovak professor, who is curating an exhibition called "20th century Slovak typography, part 1: 1918-1970" from October 8th 2004 until January 2nd 2005, in Bratislava's Mirbachov Palace. He has done a pioneering job on historical research of typographical work done by Slovak artists since the beginning of the Czechoslovak state in 1918.

Author of Modernost Tradicie (or: Modernity of Tradition) (2012, Slovart), about which Typotheque writes: This book uncovers the largely forgotten history of Slovak graphic design since 1918. After a slow start, cultural life in Central Europe underwent an unprecedented development, as is documented in the works of Martin Benka, Andrej Kovacik, Jaroslav Vodrazka, Karol Ondreicka, Jozef Cincik, Stefan Bednar and Rudolf Fabry. The works are placed in their historical context and are accompanied by historical facts and descriptions of the cultural and political situation in the country.

Designer of hundreds of book covers.

Author of Martin Benka, the first designer of the Slovak National Myth.
