Zbigniew Brzezinski’s “Bibliography and Drawings”
- “Step By Step Printing SUPREMATISM“
- Artist’s Books in Poland
The Book Art Museum from, Poland is the recipient of the 2015 American Printing History Association’s (APHA) Institutional Award. The Museum’s founders Jadwiga, Janusz and Pawe‚ Tryzno will be presenting their work and discussing their museum and the situation of book arts in Poland.
The Museum, which for the last 20 years has been “squatting“ in an abandoned villa in, has made an extraordinary contribution to the preservation of the art of fine printing. In a country where historic printing techniques were almost eradicated under communism, it collects and restores vintage printing equipment, cultivates printing skills, and performs outreach to the community. Over the last 35 years the Book Art Museum has issued over 30 high-quality artist’s books in limited runs, including Second Space with the poem by Czeslaw Mi‚osz (2011), and Zbigniew Brzezinski’s Bibliography and Drawings (two editions, 1993 and 2013). Their most recent work Step By Step Printing SUPREMATISM, consists of a letterpress rendition of an English translation of a 1920 manifesto by Casimir Malevich and 49 lenticular prints inspired by Suprematism. These works will be shown at CENTRAL BOOKING.
