Agata Dudek

I have to admit that for a long time I thought that children books in Poland are really not fun and few months ago thanks to very nice small bookshop with amazing girl who now everything about them I discovered whole range of great books which I have impression are always hidden in the bigger stores. Agata Dudek is one of my favourite illustrator above few illustrations from her upcoming book Zozo i Lulu and titles which are already available Scary Monsters (Straszne Strachy, published by Endo) and Crows and snake (Wrony i waz, published by Dwie Siostry).

Michal Batory

Michal Batory is a polish poster designer living in France. He is very famous for his work and is been showcase in many book publications. The fact I love about his work is simplicity and idea of giving new meaning to different items or making things out of them. His work is very powerful and emotional.

Marta Ignerska

I am a big fan of Marta Ignerska, few months ago I bought her book titled 'Babcia robi na drutach' and now her next book just came about it's a Fryderyk Chopin i jego muzyka (Fryderyk Chopin and his music) some of the illustrations from the book are available on her website and I have to say I really want to have this book or rather I have to have this book.


One of nice things I found on the book fair is the Fukt, magazine for drawing. It's really cool publication with lots of good work in it. It might remind a bit of Le gun. It is annual publication and the editor is Bjorn Hegardt.
