VeryGraphic. Polish Designers of the 20th Century, published by Culture.pl and edited by Jacek Mrowczyk, is a compilation of information on contemporary graphic design, which is unprecedented in its scope. Together with Out of the Ordinary, the two publications constitute a unique compendium of knowledge on twentieth-century Polish design.
The book was written in English in order to present the immense and diverse legacy of Polish graphic designers to the world. Although it has a very rich history, their work remains little known abroad. Polish applied design is much more than just the internationally acclaimed poster school.
The poster is a recognisable brand of Polish design and to many foreign readers it remains the only known field of visual arts from the country on the Vistula – explains Mrowczyk in the introduction.
