A highly decorative invitation card was designed by a famous Slovenian architect and furniture designer Jože Plečnik. If was issued for the occasion of this honorary doctorate, which was presented to him on January 23, 1952 at the University of Ljubljana. The usual hand written correction was made to repair a mistake of quoting the year 1951 instead of 1952. The printing / designing mistake probably happened as lapsus, as the card was designed at the end of 1951 or in the beginning of the 1952, when the author would automatically still record the old year.
Jože Plečnik was one of the most prominent European architects and designers of the early and mid 20th century. He studied with Viennese architect Otto Wagner and worked in Wagner’s architecture office until 1900. His architectural works can been seen mostly in Prague, Ljubljana and Vienna. He was also active as a designer and amateur archaeologist.
