Pre-order. Publication November 18th, 2020

Facsimile. Limited edition of 200 numerated and certified copies.

The Pater is the first philosophical work by Czech artist Alphonse Mucha (1860-1939). The book was published in Paris the 20th December 1899, just before a new century. In this book that illustrates the Lord's prayer, Mucha wrote a message for the next generations through a humanist thought. The prayer is divided into seven phrases: each of them is reproduced, then commented and illustrated by the artist.
This luxury slipcase contains a facsimile of the original edition, accompanied by a certificate by John Mucha, the artist's grandson, and a companion book including three essays: the first one, by Tomoko Sato (curator at Mucha Foundation), contextualizes the work and analyses his importance in Mucha's career; in the second one, Jacob Sadilek offers an interpretation from a Freemason point of view; lastly, Otto Urban concludes the reflexion by an analyse of Mucha's spiritualism in 1890s Paris, and, more broadly, of nationalism and symbolism in Czech art. The book concludes with a symbolical glossary of the Pater.
