The aim of the lecture is to present Polish cultural posters in which the designers (by the use of consciously chosen graphic techniques and composition) surprise the audience with an additional artistic value such as metaphor. The metaphor will be shown in the poster and explained. Using it in poster design is characteristic to so called Polish school of poster. Metaphor is the ‘weapon’ in the hands of successors of this stream.
