Projekt 26

The Peace Tour by Maciej Urbaniec

Regular price

Regular price £85.00

Maciej Urbaniec designed this striking Polish poster in 1965 for a cycling event called ‘The Peace Tour’, which was known as the Tour de France of the East. It was jointly organised by Czechoslovakia, the Polish People’s Republic and East Germany as a way to relieve tensions post-war and ran from 1948 to 2006. The broad brush strokes so beautifully evoke a hopeful sense of moving forward with purpose and in unity. 

This is an official limited edition B1 reprint (c.500), which was printed in Poland with kind permission from Maciej Urbaniec’s family.

About Projekt 26

Projekt 26 sources original designs and limited edition reprints from the Polish School of Posters; a uniquely soulful and expressive graphic art movement which emerged during Poland’s post-war Communist years. Founders, British-Polish duo Harriet and Sylwia work closely with collectors in Poland to source authentic originals and fully authorised limited edition reprints. Their lovingly curated collection contains some of the 20th century's most beautiful, iconic and rare poster designs. Their passion for preserving the legacy of Polish poster artists runs so deep that Sylwia’s just bought a battered old car which once belonged to Waldemar Swierzy!
