POLISH SCHOOL OF POSTERS | 1945-1989

We weren’t allowed to do it the way they did it in the West, but also we didn’t want to

Hello.

We source original mid-century posters from incredible body of graphic art known as the Polish School of Posters (1945-1989).

At the heart of our collection are bold and playful works by some of Poland’s greatest 20th century artists. Printed on beautiful matte paper and bursting with colour, there’s an imperfect charm to every one.

Through Projekt 26 we hope to preserve these ground-breaking works for a new generation and inject a little of their soulful optimism and subversive wit back into the world.

This is only a fraction of our collection online, so do get in touch if you’d like to see more, or sign up to the newsletter to get the heads up on new stock.

 
All posters should be designed by individual artists who should have freedom of interpretation and artistic expression.
— Ministry for Culture and the Arts, The Polish People's Republic

The Polish School of Posters.

Produced in a unique moment in history - when posters were one of the only permitted artistic outlets by the ruling Communist state - the Polish School of Posters broke all the design conventions with their highly expressive interpretive style.

Bespoke Service.

If you are interested in organising a private viewing at your home or business please get in touch.

We also work with interior designers and architects to source for specific projects.

And if you’re looking for something for a space but can’t quite decide what would work, we’d love to recommend pieces if you send us images of your wall/room.
