While preparing a post on Wawel tapestries (coming soon), came upon a pleasant surprise in the form of Magdalena Piwocka's book Arrasy króla Zygmunta Augusta. Rośliny [King Sigismund's Tapestries. Plants]. When I picked it up from the library (its twin publication - Arrasy króla Zygmunta Augusta. Rośliny [King Sigismund's Tapestries. Animals] - is nowhere to be found in Łódź during the lockdown) - I was astounded. It's a tiny thing - the size of a CD cover, the text is only a few pages long, but is more than worth reading, because of its credibility, a very interesting topic and a beautiful, richly illustrated edition.
Recommended to all readers - if only for the gorgeous pictures.
