The book presenting the work of Eryk Lipiński (1908–1991) – a cartoonist, author of posters, book illustrations, caricaturist and satirist – was created in cooperation with the Caricature Museum in Warsaw, which the artist was the initiator of. In 1935, together with Zbigniew Mitzner and Zenon Wasilewski, he founded the periodical “Szpilki”, in which he was the editor-in-chief for several years. As a cartoonist, he also collaborated with “Przekrój”, “Przegląd Kulturalny”, “People’s Tribune”, “Panorama” and “Express Wieczorny”. The grotesque played an important role in Lipiński’s poster work, and thanks to the wide variety of techniques and forms, his works gained their own unique character.
