After several years of extensive research and commissioning content from historians, photographers, and other experts, we (editors Heinz Patzak and Werner Honal), are now completing a travel and art book about the Patzak / Pacák family of Baroque sculptors. The English language book is titled
„Journeys in Bohemia’s Inspired Landscape”
It is scheduled to be released in December 2023, just in time for Christmas giving.
We’re hoping for an enthusiastic response, and a flurry of orders.

(None of these three versions is a commercial project; the editors and contributing authors are working gratis.)
“East Bohemia’s Inspired Landscape: The Baroque Statues by the Patzak Family of Sculptors” („Ostböhmens beseelte Landschaft – Die Barockstatuen der Bildhauerfamilie Patzak“ – „Oduševnělá krajina východních Čech – Barokní sochy a sochařská rodina Pacákových“) is scheduled for publication in 2024/25 under the auspices of a German and a Czech non-profit association. Before publication in German and in Czech, we are applying for a grant from the German-Czech Future Fund DTZF in order to put the book into the hands of students, so they can learn about and appreciate these exceptional examples of Baroque sculpture in East Bohemia.
If they realize the importance of preserving this artistic heritage, they will help save it.
