Lodorosty i Bluszczary

Poems for Children by Jerzy Ficowski

Honourable mention for illustrations and design from the Polish Section of IBBY/Polska Sekcja IBBY The Book of the Year 2017.

I had a great honour to work on the book by a prominent Polish writer Jerzy Ficowski. Lodorosty i bluszczary is a collection of the author’s poems for children. The book has been published in two hardcover versions. Poems are divided into 5 chapters – each containing pieces referring to a different season of the year: Winter, Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter again (Christmas time). The publication consists of 103 poems on 228 pages. I illustrated them with nearly 100 drawings.
