After “Tuwim” and “Brzechwa”, “Kern” follows as the third volume of a fantastic art project from Wytwórnia Press that gives classics of Polish children’s verse a fresh take, as they are newly interpreted in illustration by well-known artists. In this volume, the texts of Ludwig Jerzy Kern (1920-2010) are newly readable and possess a welcome freshness. This project is also a wonderful demonstration of the diversity and high quality of present-day Polish illustration. The book features widely divergent visual configurations, ranging from awkward and odd collages, to clean-lined computer graphics, to gentle water-colour paintings, to eerie grey pencil drawings. The seven illustrators represented in this book have each illustrated two to six poems. At the start of each chapter one is glad to learn something of their development as artists and their role in Polish children’s literature.
