He is bleak, concrete, gray, dirty, remembering the war, full of blood and pain. Torn, clumsy and ugly. There’s always something wrong with him, he does not learn from past mistakes and too often flatters strange tastes of his friends.

She is cheerful, bright, delicate, full of songs and sunshine. She spends a lot of time in parks, likes moving and fresh air and has a good taste. In the evenings she can be found in cafés, and during the day – in cinemas and galleries. She has broad waves of the Vistula in her hair. Like bridges, she likes connecting people. She smiles a lot and is getting younger and younger.

Wars and Sawa: two faces of the city you can hate or have your own dreams about it. The life here is easy and hard at the same time. It’s difficult to leave and even harder to go back. The city is constantly moving, pulsating and remembering, it is splitted, reconciled, in love...

As in any capital city, there is more of everything here – more history, more present, more colours, more shapes and more people. The districts are small cities which shape that big and a bit vague one.

For several years Warsaw has been getting younger, having more and more fun and shaping up. It’s because of the people, sometimes those living here all their lives, sometimes those who migrated there. Warsaw quickly binds people to itself and does not like them to forget about the city.

Warsaw is most beautiful in the summer evenings. Everyone wants to be a Varsovian then...

What for?

We’d like to present you the set of the new city guides – the only ones of their kind, alternatve, subjective and very colourful.

We are passionate about cities, in love with their pulse and breathing. We have wandered up and down to choose what we deemed the most interesting, most valuable or simply worth paying a visit. The guidebooks feature both brand new places, which have just opened and only begun their lives, and those which have been on the map for tens or even hundreds years.

We set forth into the cities in daytime and at night, we know exactly how they look in the long white-grey winter, in the green and fresh spring, in the hot, lazy and peaceful summer and in the colourful artistic autumn.

We know our cities and closely follow their trends, developments and incoming changes. We talk with the people, we walk, run and cycle a lot. From this perspective we can see, hear and feel more.

We have always kept an eye on what’s going on and made sure that we haven’t missed a thing. The rest of your urban travels is up to you.

The cities are not easy beasts. They’re huge and confusing. Our series may make it easier to get your head around them.

Marta Ignerska
Born in ’78. Lives in Saska Kępa. Works in Praga. In Warsaw for 13 years.

A graphic designer and illustrator.

For the design and illustrations to the book “Wszystko Gra" (“Everything Plays") Ignerska received the "Bologna Ragazzi Award 2012″, the prize which is an equivalent of the Golden Palm or the Oscar for publishers of children’s books, the Silver Prize in the European Design Awards competition and the first prize in the IBBY competition.

Other books designed by Marta Ignerska: “Wielkie Marzenia" (“Big Dreams"), “+ -", “Babcia robi na drutach" (“Grandmother knits"), “ Alfabet" (“Alphabet"), “Fryderyk Chopin i jego muzyka" (“Fryderyk Chopin and his music") and “Jak przeklinać. Poradnik dla dzieci" (“How to swear. A handbook for children").

She works for Polish publishers, but she has also designed books to publishers from Brazil, France, Spain and Switzerland.

She doesn’t draw only for kids: in 2012 the magazine “Press" named her one of the 11 best newspaper illustrators in Poland and the Małopolska Foundation Museum of Contemporary Art appreciated her works by buying them to its collection.

Marta Ignerska is a member of Stowarzyszenie Twórców Grafiki Użytkowej (Association of Applied Graphic Designers).

For her, Warsaw is Chaos - a city in the process of constant self-creation. She thinks that the chance for the city is to give it to the hands of artists
