Description The study focuses on the graphic design of the covers created for the legendary periodical Host do domu (A Guest in the House; 1954–1970). In periodical publications, the cover is regarded as a specific component whose function is to initiate communication with a reader and to visually articulate the general character of the periodical. It is studied as a specific graphic work, one that both originates and functions within the context of a certain time and social conditions.
