SIGNS. Yearbook 1983. no. 1-52 (no. 29 and 30 missing).

A weekly magazine for younger children.

It was May 1, 1945. The war was in progress. In liberated Lodz, at the "Czytelnik" Publishing Cooperative, the first issue of "Świerszczyk" was published. The title was invented by the well-known writer Ewa Szelburg-Zarembina.

The cricket playing behind the chimney was to be a symbol of what many children lost in the turmoil of war - the warmth of a family home.

The cover of the first issue was painted by an outstanding illustrator, Jan Marcin Szancer, while the first vignette of "Świerszczyk" was designed by another outstanding graphic artist, Eryk Lipinski, a satirist and long-time editor-in-chief of "Szpilek." The first editor-in-chief of "Świerszczyk" became a writer, literary critic and translator, Wanda Grodzienska.

In its first years, the magazine replaced textbooks destroyed during the war. In 1951 it merged with Warsaw's "Iskierki" and began publishing in "Nasz Księgarnia." "Świerszczyk"-Iskierki" went out until 1956, when readers decided to return to the name "Świerszczyk."

The editor-in-chief was Boleslaw Zagala. Among the magazine's illustrators were Bohdan Butenko, Maria Mackiewicz, Wieslaw Majchrzak, Bożena Truchanowska, Halina Zakrzewska.

Hardcover bookbinding with gilt on the spine, preserved booklet covers

Condition: loose block, several loose pages, signature, several pages torn (no. 13), no. 29 and 30 missing
