‘This beautiful book lifts the lid on the story of Młoda Polska, or Young Poland.’
The Arts Society Magazine
‘Well researched and beautifully illustrated.’
I am immensely proud to have designed this groundbreaking publication, the first book in any language to explore the Young Poland (Młoda Polska) period in the context of the international Arts and Crafts movements. It coincides with the first major exhibition to explore the decorative arts and architecture of Young Poland, opening at the William Morris Gallery in October 2021.
The book is the culmination of an international research project co-financed by the Polish Ministry of Culture and National Heritage as part of the ‘Inspiring Culture’ Programme. It is a collaboration between Lund Humphries, the William Morris Gallery, the National Museum in Kraków and the Polish Cultural Institute, London.
