POLAND. Die durchfuhrung des dreijahrplans des wiederaufbaus der wirtschaft in Polen. 62 pp., illustrated throughout with isotype diagrams, charts and photographs. Small oblong folio, 215 x 300 mm., bound in publisher's illustrated wrappers. Warszawa: Ksiazka i Wiedza, 1950.
An unusual example of avant-garde book design from Communist Poland. The publication was clearly influenced by similar Soviet publications such as Lissitzky's An Album Illustrating the State Organization and National Economy of the U.S.S.R. published in 1939. Among the devices employed are charming variations on the concept of the isotype.
This would appear to be quite rare with OCLC listing only 2 copies in the U.S., at Northwestern and the ILO in Washington.
