Gosia Kulik and Tomek Zarnecki I

One of the books I found last weekend at the Polish children's festival in Edinburgh was 'Chore Historie', is a book exploring the 14 epidemics that plagued mankind throughout the centuries, from Leprosy to Ebola. This book illustrated by Gosia Kulik in collaboration with Tomek Żarnecki contains many interesting cultural curiosities to show how these diseases influenced the history of mankind. The illustrations are a fascinating combination of print, collage and text which are scary, funny, intriguing and educational.
