By Elena Millie and Zbigniew Kantorosinski

The Library of Congress published The Polish Poster: from Young Poland through the Second World War in 1993 to commemorate the centennial of the Polish art poster movement. This book recently has been digitized and made available through the two links above, for viewing via "page view" display or searchable .pdf.

The Polish Poster describes over 130 posters drawn from the Library of Congress' collection of approximately 3,000 Polish posters created between the years 1900-1945. The 130 posters are grouped into six time periods and then listed alphabetically, by artist, within each period. Each section begins with a historical description of Poland during that period, followed by the then-current groupings, styles and trends in Polish art. The book also contains biographical notes for each artist and a select bibliography.
