    Several of the singles by Czechoslovak singer Valérie Čižmárová use a sleeve template with a photograph by Luboš Svátek and the artist’s name set in Davida. They were released by Supraphon in the early 1970s.

    The images in this post show the sleeves for Koko” / “Pán S Loutnou (1971) and “Důkaz Mi Dej” / “Huascaran” (1973). The same design was also used for “To Je Léto” / “Synu Můj” (1972), “Oči Nelžou” / “Říkáš Pořád Jak Ti Na Mně Záleží” (1972), and “Tak Měj Mě Rád” / “Mít Aero A Létat” (1973). The preprinted picture sleeve was overprinted with the titles and the serial number set in various styles from Universal Grotesk. More recently, the cover design with Davida was referenced for a compilation of Čižmárová’s early singles, Singly (1969–1973). See also the template featuring Motter Alustyle which was used for her subsequent single releases.

    Valérie Čižmárová – also known professionally without the acute accent over the first e in her first name – was born as Valéria Čižmárová on 29th January 1952, Michalovce, Czechoslovakia (present-day Slovakia), of a Hungarian-speaking family. She died 7th March 2005, Prague, Czech Republic. For further details on her life and work please visit the fan blog “Bananas For Breakfast”.
