Fantastic, I especially love the cover for "stomatolog radzi".
wow! i want to have them all framed on my wall!
great stuff... ludwik jerzy kern zemsta szafy completely kills me!
great post -- admiring the work put into everything here
Awhile back I found a great trove of Polish poster design on Artstor; I hadn't known it was so famous, but it's rightly so. I think Czech and Polish graphic design of the 70s is quite astounding, but I don't actually know that much about it (being so wrapped up in the pre-1940s).
excellent choices i agree with Karla above the Czech and Polich graphic designs are truly wonderful, thanks for these.
Hello.I'm a big fan of Your blog, and I'd like to thank You for Your great posts about Polish design. Also I'd love to be of any help with the information about the designers.Hope to here from You.
Kamil, definitely email me: ajourneyroundmyskull AT gmail dot com.I would love to know about the designers and perhaps see some more work by them.Will
Hey Will,Do you have dates for any of these? That would help with assigning designers. I've got some resources I can send your way that might help too.
and fwiw, I know Iskry is a publisher, not a designer. Cieslewicz did some work for them earlier in his career.
Derrick, I just briefly tried again to find dates, and it's hard. There were reprints of some of theses which used the same covers, which makes it that much harder to get the real dates. I'll keep trying! Thanks for your help.Will
I tried to collect the dates. I hope my email will be useful.
Trudny Powrót (Difficult Homecoming?) must be about the 1944 Warsaw Uprising - the Polish Armia Krajowa flag reflected in the colors of the roof, the supply canister being dropped. Very cool and striking.
Thanks so much for such as rare glimpse into this subject. Your blog is great and I appreciate your shares.
The cover for Ludwik Jerzy Kern is by Daniel Mróz. http://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniel_Mr%C3%B3z
The design for Kern's Zemsta szafy is by Daniel Mróz.http://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniel_Mr%C3%B3z

Hello,Cortazar book cover was made by Wojciech Freudenreich.Greetings from Poland!Monika
Hi again,Bohdan Bocianowski is an author of Strugaccy cover.
Hello! A very interesting post. Here's an idea: this the catalog of the National Library of Poland:http://alpha.bn.org.pl/searchAnd here, as an example, is the catalog record (search result) for one of the books shown, "Zemsta szafy":http://alpha.bn.org.pl/search~S4/?searchtype=t&searcharg=Zemsta+szafyIt does say "Il. Daniel Mróz" ("Il." = "ilustracje", graphics credit), which I know to be correct from other sources.There are a few gotchas: not every book might be in the catalog, also not every book might have the graphics credit listed, also sometimes the author of the art inside the book and the designer of the cover might be two different persons. But it gives you a place to start.
Holy borscht! Who would have known all that talent was hiding away in Poland.
