Emil Weiss

Emil Weiss (August 14 1896 – January 6 1965) was a Czech illustrator.

Weiss was born in Moravia, then part of Austria-Hungary, and trained as an architect in Vienna. In Prague, in the 1920s, he worked as a cartoonist for newspapers and as a commercial artist doing advertising. His posters are on display at the Prague Museum of Applied Arts, where reproductions are on sale as posters and even as miniatures on matchbox covers.

Weiss also worked as an architect. His style was Art Deco, severely geometrical, with rounded corners, un-decorated, handcrafted of finest materials.
