The publication "Zkušenost exilu" (The Experience of Exile) explores the fates of exiles from the Russian Empire in interwar Czechoslovakia.

The trilingual book was a follow-up to a successful exhibition at the Memorial of National Literature in Hvězda. The visual style of the book was based on typographic elements and playful stylization of book covers. The publication was awarded the title of the best publication of the year 2017 in the Gloria Musaealis competition. Two other volumes, "Příběhy exilu" (Exile Stories) and "Z historie exilu" (From the History of Exile), followed as part of this extensive project.
