A beautifully book with late art deco design, with poetry in Slovenian, by Vinko Beličič, was published in 1944 in Ljubljana, at the time occupied by Nazi Germany. The imprint was written in German and Slovenian. The poems were written during WWII in Yugoslavia and Italy, where the author was studying, and are accompanied by decorative black and white vignettes in late art deco style.
This is a first separate publication by Vinko Beličič (1913–1999), who escaped the new Yugoslav regime after WWII for his connections with collaborators and the Catholic church. Beličič escaped through DP camps in Austria to Trieste, where he continued publishing. He only visited his native country again in 1991, after the fall of Yugoslavia.
