Polski Posters

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013

Design Bureau is based in Chicago, where we often hyperbolically claim to have a larger Polish population than major cities in Poland, so we were excited to learn about Eye Sea, a London-based graphic archive and online shop that sells original Polish film, theater, and circus posters from the '60s and '70s by artists like Wiktor Gorka, Waldemar Swierzy, Franciszek Starowieyski, Andrzej Krajewski, and Jerzy Flisak.

"Our collection is handpicked with an emphasis on design," says Eye Sea's James Dyer, who has a friend in Poland who helps source the posters. "He hunts high and low and recently found someone with 5,000 posters stashed in his garage," says Dyer. "They're getting increasingly hard to find though and finding them in good condition is like finding gold dust."

The condition of each poster is detailed on the site, and they range in price from £50-£200 ($79-$317).
