Borowski Design Competition Winner

I was fortunate enough to be asked to serve as one of the judges in the recent competition to find a cover design for Tadeusz Borowski's seminal book about his experiences at Auschwitz, This Way for the Gas, Ladies and Gentleman. We received hundreds of fine designs from around the world, and the image above by Anna Zyśko of Tarnobrzeg, Poland, was finally--after much discussion--chosen as the winning design.

To read more about this competition and to see five other entries to the contest, please go to John Bertram's site Venus Febriculosa.

The competition was sponsored in part by the Consulate General of the Republic of Poland in Los Angeles.
