Literkolekcja Photobook

Litercollection is a project presenting various manifestations of letter expression in public space. On the cover, there is a table of contents passing through the spine and extending beyond the bleed. The texts reproduce the inscriptions on the photos with all errors. The photographs are deliberately raw in expression, without artificial aesthetics. The text is also deliberately agitated, which reflects the nature of the imperfections of the typography of the photos.

Academy of Fine Arts in Cracow

The Jan Matejko Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków is Poland’s oldest artistic university. The history of the Academy reaches back to 1818. Later, the Academy made a strong contribution to the achievements of Polish art and culture, and the works of its eminent teachers and graduates became famous throughout Europe. Jan Matejko, a great painter and the patron of the Academy, furthered thinking not only in the categories of national identity and liberty, but primarily those of high artistic standards. He untiringly devoted time and assets to laying the foundations for the education of numerous generations of artists in Poland.
