On the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Czechoslovak republic, the Národní památkový ústav (National Monuments Institute) published the book called Lípy svobody v Královehradeckém kraji (Freedom linden of Hradec Králové region). The book maps trees planted always on occasion of establishment of the independent republic from 1919 till today. The stories of this memorable and symbolically important trees were documented by Jiřina Jelínková together with photographer Petr Omelka.
Graphic and typeface design is based on simplicity, which gives space for enormous and colourful photography of each linden. Typefacing was a real joy while looking at blooming and majestic linden.
