This book presents the first survey of the work of the postwar graphic designer Wojciech Zamecznik, a key artist of the Polish Poster School and a pioneer of the use of photography in graphic work. This elegantly designed book reveals the breadth of the artists creative output, which ranged from exhibition design to film-title sequencing, in addition to his core activities in poster, book, and record-sleeve design. Zameczniks photographic work is also on full display, organized into sections and separated with flyleaves printed on blue and yellow paper, echoing the colors of the books cover. The curators, Karolina Puchala-Rojek and Karolina Ziebinska-Lewandowska, have selected maxims by the artist, printed on these pages, defining the visual themes of the sections. This creates an ordering system that makes the work accessible even to those unfamiliar with Zamecznik, says Ann-Christin Bertrand. Inserted into the middle of an image, this organizing system gives the reader a very coherent sense of the fluidity between medium and genre which characterizes this artists oeuvre.
