"He leads the field by a very long furlong, out on his own, making his own weather. He is Klimowski, unafraid."-Harold Pinter, Nobel Prize-winning playwright In the mid-1970s, Andrzej Klimowski's fearlessly original artwork caught the eye of leading Polish theater and film companies, for whom he designed some of the period's most iconic posters. The London-born artist, who moved to Poland at a time when many East Europeans dreamed of going West, went on to create posters for works by filmmakers and playwrights from Scorsese to Altman, Beckett to Brecht. Drawing on folk art and Polish Surrealism, Klimowski uses techniques including photomontage and linocut to create posters that are filled with metaphor, drama, and originality.

Steven Heller, Print Magazine online

"The Klimowski Poster Book is perfect for film buffs and design enthusiasts alike, highlighting the artist's techniques including photomontage and linocut to create posters that are filled with metaphor, drama, and originality." Graphic Design USA
