Adolf Born

Prague, 1930 - 2016

One of the major post-war artists. Graphic designer, cartoonist, illustrator and designer of animated films, he was named Knight of Arts and Literature in his country and in France. Known for bizarre figures, painted in dark colors and wearing huge Victorian-style top hats, in 1966 he also collaborated on a cartoon based on Tolkien's work, Hobbit. In 1973, following the ban on publishing certain cartoons, he dedicated himself to animation and became famous as the "Walt Dysney of Eastern Europe". He has participated in many editions of the Salon, always standing out for his original works and with a subtle macabre humour.

Salone Internazionale dell'Umorismo

The event could not have lasted for over fifty years without the contribution of numerous "volunteers" and "precepts" who brought enthusiasm and desire to do whatever the task received, with nineteenth-century shifts! From the choice of the drawings, to the preparation of the panels (always the same every year), to the posting with various pins of the hundreds of drawings up to the presence on stage.

We therefore want to thank, in absolutely no order but with equal contributions, all those who come to mind, apologizing if we miss some, but we are ready to fix it!
