Poland Home of a thousand year old nation
Fruit of may years’ work by the master photographer Adam Bujak - painting the beauty of Polish architecture and landscape in light - and the art and architecture historian, professor Janusz Dobesz. A far cry from the stereotypical coffee table book portrayal of Poland, this volume takes an approach of presenting the topic from the perspective of the "Polish home". Its coverage includes the marvellous, well known works of Polish architecture - testimonials to Poland’s European identity - as well as objects rarely shown in collections of this sort, such as the Czarnolas manor, or Drzymała’s wagon. It is a comprehensive and careful collection of structures erected in Poland over the past millennium. Among the objects figuring within are: grottos from around Ojców, the fortified settlement of Biskupin, royal abodes - Wawel and the Royal Castle in Warsaw - Castles and palaces of the aristocrats, manors of the nobility, peasant dwellings, urban architecture - both historical as well as modern - churches, cathedrals and monasteries.
