Illustrations in the school-paper Domače vaje

The manuscript paper Domače vaje was published in 70 volumes, from 1868/69 until 1939/40, by secondary-school pupils in Ljubljana. Besides being interesting for its texts, it also excells with many handsome illustrations, which became ever richer with the growing age of the paper. Some of the draughtsmen became later renowned as painters (Tone Kralj, 1900-75; Stane Kregar,1905-73) or architects (Tone Bitenc, 1920-77; Jože Kregar, 1921-91); their talent was already evident in their early illustrations. The paper also presents other young “artists” in Domače vaje and the sources of their inspiration.
