Polish posters…

October 3, 2011


A couple of times lately I have been reminded of the amazing nature and particular style of Polish posters…. I am sure there was one in the background in the movie ‘Beginners’ and then Saturday night we saw some beauties at the Polish restaurant….
“Posters are very important in the Polish culture. During the Communist regime they were probably the only colorful things one would see in the streets.” Quote, great history and images to go with here –

  1. Thanks for highlighting this wonderful rich history… i’ve just spent the last hour looking through the brilliant compilation… how good are the 60’s – “Cat Balou”… etc… so many eye popping works of art that totally respect the medium, i’m off to learn more.
