Słup: The Polish Poster Column

Availability: In stock

An interactive art book celebrating the most creative period of poster art in Poland, known as the Polish School of Posters, through some of its iconic film and theatre affiches created between the 1950s and the late 1980s. These were displayed in the streets of the former Polish People’s Republic using an outstanding piece of urban equipment - the poster column, which is still functional to this day.  

This book is divided into two parts: the first includes ten detachable posters by such legendary designers as Jan Lenica, Henryk Tomaszewski, Wojciech Fangor, Wiktor Górka, Jerzy Flisak, Maria ‘Mucha’ Ihnatowicz, Witold Janowski and Jakub Erol. The second part allows readers to press out and build a mini Polish poster column - all you need is glue!
Słup is bilingual (English & Polish) and includes a foreword by art historian Katarzyna Matul.

Contains 10 detachable print reproductions that can be framed, each measuring 24 x 34 centimeters or about 9.5 x 13.4 inches.

Also includes a press-out cardboard poster column with mini prints to paste onto the model.

Edited by David Navarro and Martyna Sobecka. Published by Zupagrafika in 2023. Hardcover, measures 13.8 x 10.6 inches, 50 pages. ISBN 9788396326836 Slup
