Polish illustrators as recommended by Jan Pieńkowski

In my interview earlier this week with Jan Pieńkowski he suggested some current Polish illustrators that we might enjoy here on Playing by the book. Today’s post includes a selection of their work – do let me know what you think!

Monika Hanulak (whose work Jan Pieńkowski described as modest and clever)

Monica doesn’t have a website of her own but here’s a link to a publishing house where you can see some of her work. I believe none of her books are yet available in English, but one book is available in French, and another in Italian.

Aleksandra Machowiak and Daniel Mizieliński

More of Aleksandra and Daniel’s work can be seen on their website and blog. Several of their books have been translated into other European languages: next week sees H.O.U.S.E published in the UK (click here for several images from this very interesting sounding book).

  1. I very much like the restricted colours and almost lino-print quality of the Hanulak work.

  2. Zoe, these look fabulous. I adore seeing books from other countries – they can feel so fresh and new! Thank you for a fabulous post!
