UPCOMING RELEASE OF “ZWIERZYNIEC – OKAZY WYBRANE”
An extraordinary collection of poems and stories bringing to live animals depicted by Polish artists.
The book brings together animals depicted by Polish artists over the last few centuries. Creatures that were painted, woven, sculpted and papercut. Beasts with wings, horns, familiar and exotic, wild and domesticated. Famous and obscure. Ancient and quite young. Arguing and making deals, roaring and singing, scavenging and trying on shoes, sleeping, longing and day-dreaming. They all invite children and adults to take a walk across the astonishing world of wildlife and art.
