Street posters

In 1961, Wojciech Zamecznik was commissioned by a publisher from Austria to design Józef Mroszczak’s book about contemporary Polish poster. The richly illustrated album Polnische Plakat Kunst was released in 1962 by Econ-Verlag in Vienna. At that time, poster design was booming and the Polish School of Poster was exceptionally popular across the world. Zamecznik took a series of photographs for this book – portraits of the designers and views of posters in public space. The mounting of the posters was prearranged, but nevertheless faithfully reflected their presence in the streets of Warsaw.
