|Janusz Pawel Tryzno and Jadwiga
Book Art Museum, Lódz, Poland
We travelled to Lódz with Radoslaw Nowakowski kindly accompanying us as our translator, to interview the wonderful Janusz Pawel Tryzno and Jadwiga Tryzno, founders of the Book Art Museum, with their son Pawel Tryzno. This is an amazing institution which has been publishing works for many years, and which houses a working press studio and bindery, full of rescued machinery which is all maintained and used to produce editions. Their son Pawel also runs a Lenticular printing studio in the same building.
Janusz Pawel Tryzno and Jadwiga Tryzno have been publishing artists’ books as CdA Press (Correspondence des Arts) and fine press works for 28 years.

Between them the Tryznos combine the practice of traditional and modern methods of production for artists’ books, curate exhibitions, promote and teach book arts to a wide audience and maintain the museum collection
Correspondence des Arts – Polish Artists Books from Lodz, an exhibition at the National Library in Singapore, published 2005, ISBN 83-912352-4-6 also has a bibliography of articles about the Tryznos.
