Examples of Ladislav Sutnar's graphic design work in the United States, especially printed ephemera and small publications, form this collection, with the bulk of the material being work for commercial clients. Much of this takes the form of industrial catalogs, advertising and corporate identity work. However, this collection also includes a number of specialized small publications such as Transport or Design and paper. Paper and printing companies produced these booklets as promotional materials to showcase their products and services and distributed them to printers, art directors and others in the industry. Other graphic designs in this collection were created in conjunction with Sutnar's product design or exhibition design ventures. These include prints for the marketing of his unrealized children's building block set, Build the Town, as well as the Sutnar-designed invitation to the 1969 exhibition of his paintings, Joy-Art
