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).
This is the front cover for “Hare”, a book inspired by Albrecht Durer which will be published in December 2010. Written by Grzegorz Kasdepke, illustrations by Ola Cieślak
An interior page of a counting book for small children written and illustrated by Ola Cieślak. You can see many more illustrations on Ola’s blog – here.
If you’d like to see more work by different Polish illustrators then there is this great blog – Polska ilustracja dla dzieci (Polish chidlren’s illustration)
