Prague Faire (May)
- Dobrye noch', druzhina moya!
(Sorry if you're getting this twice, I think the first
transmission bounced. Ack.)
My local college group is sponsoring their annual
Renaissance Faire this May. In a really bold and
sophisticated move, they are ditching Merrie Olde
England---indeed, Western Europe altogether---and are
setting the Faire in 16th century Prague. (I'm
really REALLY proud of them. :) )
Since I have some working knowledge of Slavic art and
culture, they've asked me to help with the artsy
stuff. Signs, posters, designing the program, garb,
etc. But sadly, I know virutally nothing about
Renaissance Bohemia, Moravia or Slovakia.
Does anyone know of some online resources, that would
be appropriate to the region (western Czechoslovakia)
and time period (1582) ? Clipart would be
particularly useful for designing the Faire program.

- I don't have any on-line info or images, but I did recently purchase a CD
of dance music from Prague of 1611 -- yes, it's all early 17th century an
the basic styles would be familiar to anyone who dances in the SCA
(pavanes and such). Unfortunately, there are no dance steps, and there
seems to be minimal information for tracking down possible scores.
