It is done. Finally. Officially.

Quite a big brick related to my Brickwork series (part II)…

Unofficially, the book design was ready quite a long time ago (I forgot to change the date in the imprint before final printing). In the meantime, coronavirus “popped out” and all the deadlines have shifted …

In brief:
● Size: 30x22cm, landscape format.
● 256 pages.
● 296 photographs: development process (2010-2020), archival images (1910-1957), documents (facsimile).
● Cover: hardcover, soft touch.
● high printing detail: 450 lines per inch (lpi)
● 170 g paper.
● ISBN 978-83-950342-1-3.
● Edition: 1000 copies.

From the moment I took the first frames until finishing the book editing, an ennead passed. After supplementing the “collection” with photographs that I was not able to take at the given time, the work timescale and the horizon of work, thus the events of the perceptible world, expanded to a decade. Archives and some project documentation (facsimile) were added also… My concept changed slightly during the work, hence I decided to publish this community edition first. More on this – next time. Despite the gravitational field is bothering me more and more, the theme has not been closed yet and I believe that the next edition will be published, shedding some more light…

Coming back to the light and the image… I am very happy with the quality of this edition. The detail of 450 lines per inch (lpi) is addictive (175/210 lines per inch is normally used in offset printing). I hope all of my next books will be made in the same standard.

I would like to thank father Stanisław Betlej for enabling me the opportunity of publishing this book and for archival images. A big thank you needs to be addressed to my parents for invaluable support.
I would also like to thank the following people for passing me the photographs that were used in the book: Ryszard Sędzik (photographs from 2010-2012), Jerzy Liszka (photographs from 2010), Sławomir Dziadzio (archival image from 1910-1944), Alicja Łukasik (archival image from 1930), father Włodzimierz Chwałek (photograph from 2013), Michał Potok (photograph from 2014)

There is a short foreword in Polish. Other than this the images need no translation.
