Polish Graphic Arts-part 1

I picked up this book for the same reason I initially started collecting graphic art collections, for flyer art. I’m glad I kept them as I appreciate them on a whole different level than just “this would make a great flyer”. The title of this book is Polinische Graphik der Gegenwart  it was published in 1989. I’m just a dilettante with this stuff, if you like this kind of thing I urge you to check out the 50 Watts blog (it can be found on my blog roll to the right) it’s constantly amazing.

The Waking Dream (Surreal Graphic Art 1450-1900)

This is from a book, The Waking Dream: Fantasy and the Surreal in Graphic Art 1450-1900 (Knopf 1975). I got this as a present a long time ago and it’s pretty great. There’s a bunch of familier art in it but there’s enough stuff that I haven’t seen before or since that I really dig. [click on image to enlarge]
