When it comes to showing the role of books in our lives, illustrations from the Polish designer Paweł Kuczyński hit the perfect notes.
If you love books, you’ve probably seen some of Kuczyński’s works on Facebook, Pinterest, or Twitter.
One of the most famous is the one that shows the receiving station that’s full of books standing like on the bookshelves, and one of them takes the position of the antenna.
Kuczyński has become popular thanks to works that tackle today’s topics, such as the increasing role of social media (naming only Facebook addiction), but it’s illustrations about books that make the biggest impression.
These illustrations are not only beautifully drawn. They have the tremendous power because they are not obvious, and they provoke to think about books. Again, and again.
We’ve collected the best examples in the list below. Make sure to check out the rest of Paweł Kuczyński’s works on his profile page on Pictorem.
My personal favorite is “Books vs. TV.” Oh, and there is also the one with feeding a baby. And the one with the book sea. Which one do you love most?

Books vs. TV.
Break in transmission.
Ocean of knowledge.
Sailing with sharks.
The learning station.
