    “Listy” means “letters” and refers to the long-term correspondence of Polish writers and activists Jerzy Giedroyc and Zdzisław Najder. The design of the book reflects how the relationship between the two men changed over time. Initally intense, it cooled down and then became conflicting. A characteristic motif of the layout of both the cover and the inserts is broken typography. The title of the cover is partly hidden. Navigating the letters is facilitated by numbering and marking them with the initials of the sender and recipient. The only decorative element, including a fairly minimalist design, is the repeating motif of delicate lines and rectangular boxes with letters of letters.

    The book is designed by Polish design office Podpunkt and set entirely in Diogenes by LudwigType. It won the silver medal in the European Design Awards 2015 and got distinction in the competition for the Most Beautiful Book of the Year 2015 in Poland.
