The unique book ABCZ or H is for Havel is an illustrated Czech-English alphabet book that will delight children and adults alike. It introduces Czech culture in many areas, from gastronomy to geography, history, technology to art and design. Each letter of the alphabet represents key words – entries that are explained in an interactive, light-hearted way and surrounded by pictures. There are a total of 257 passwords in the book, which won the award for the most beautiful Czech book.

In May 2023, the author Denisa Šedivá published an ABCZ memory game to accompany the book, further enhancing its playful and interactive concept. A personal mosaic of pictures, memories and a little bit of ideas about the Czech Republic puts together the individual pieces of the Czech identity, revealing the childhood culture of the ABCZ creators and the recent past as such. The pexes can only fit one of each letter, so it contains 28 pairs and a booklet with an explanation of what is on the cards. At the same time, the cards can be stacked into arbitrarily connected patterns, with at least one line on each side of the card always connecting. As with the book, the illustrations and graphic design are by Adam Machacek and Sébastien Bohner.

In addition to the book and the pexes, a limited edition screen-printed poster was available for purchase at the Autumn Festival mini.
