This 4 color Risograph print by Magdalena Wysocka is an outtake from her photobook ‘RÓŻE’. It is a compendium of roses from 1967, which consist of 150 images of different varieties photographed in full color, printed and published in Poland. Dr. Jan Augustynowicz and Inż Antoni Gładysz, the authors of the book, gave it a loving title: ‘A guidebook for those who fancy roses’ (org. ‘Poradnik dla miłośnikow róż’).
