VeryGraphic. Polish Designers of the 20th Century, published by and edited by Jacek Mrowczyk, is a compilation of information on contemporary graphic design which is unprecedented in its scope. Together with Out of the Ordinary, the two publications constitute a unique compendium of knowledge on twentieth-century Polish design.

Leading Polish critics and experts in the field of graphic design were invited to contribute to the publication, including Artur and Magdalena Frankowscy, founders of the Fontarte design studio; Irena Przymus, curator of the Poster and Design Gallery of the National Museum in Poznań; Piotr Rypson, deputy director of the National Museum in Warsaw, visual culture historian and author of the book Against All Odds: Polish Graphic Design 1919-1949; Agata Szydłowska, design historian, founder of the Workshop for Design Criticism, and many others.

The book cover is handpainted with different colours, which makes each copy unique. The publication was designed by Kuba Sowiński. Its editor is Jacek Mrowczyk – designer, lecturer of the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice and the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, co-founder of the quarterly 2 + 3D, author of articles on graphic design and books: A Small Typographical Dictionary (2008) and PGR: Graphic Design in Poland (with Michał Warda, 2010); editor of the anthology To See / To Know: A Selection of Major Texts on Design.
