The books of “Pan Tadeusz” as seen by contemporary artists

THE BOOKS OF PAN TADEUSZ AS SEEN BY CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS
A SERIES OF POSTERS INSPIRED BY ADAM MICKIEWICZ'S POEM

12 books of Adam Mickiewicz's poem.
12 visual artists.
One poster uncovered every month.

Illustrations to various editions of Adam Mickiewicz's Pan Tadeusz are a significant and interesting element of heritage, which can complement the perception of the book. The first illustrated edition of the poem has been made in 1881 by Michał Elwiro Andriolli. During the interwar period, another set of illustrations was provided by painter and designer Tadeusz Gronowski. Among contemporary artists, it's worth mentioning Janusz Stanny, Józef Wilkoń, or young illustrators who provided posters to the theatrical play at the National Theatre in Warsaw (such as Ada Buchholc, Mariusz Libel or Patryk Mogilnicki).

The Pan Tadeusz Museum has invited twelve visual artists working in various fields or art and design to create posters referring to the twelve books of Pan Tadeusz. We've selected illustrators, graphic designers, photographers and artists, whose unique style and visual language stand out from the crowd. The posters will be exhibited in the Wrocław city space and in selectred cities in Poland. Month by month, we will gradually reveal all the books. The entire series will be presented this Autumn, as a part of the Pan Tadeusz Goes Pop exhibition at the Pan Tadeusz Museum. A special run of prints (limited editions) will be available at the Museum bookshop.
