Pan Tadeusz is the last epic poem in the history of world literature. It can be compared to Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey. Adam Mickiewicz was a genius of poetry just like Chopin of music. If the Nobel Prize had been awarded in those days, the author of Pan Tadeusz would inevitably have received it.
For this reason, he deserves to be more popular. So we published it in English, and it can serve as an excellent gift for English speakers, perfectly spreading Polish culture.
The most important and well-known text in Polish literature was printed on special art paper and hand-bound uniquely in leather and also silver and gemstones. The illustrative layer reflects one of the characteristic features of Poles, which is quarrelsomeness.
Each element of the binding such as the type and color of leather, liners, capitals, bookmarks are carefully selected and executed to achieve a harmonious whole.
