Notatki Poznańskie/Poznań Notes

The magazine is fairly priced at $30 for around 150 pages of quality colour print though the shipping, being $20 to Canada, adds a bit of a strain on the wallet.— Dmitri ☕️.
February 10, 2021Optiko is a community project that culminated in a Kickstarter campaign back in 2017. The book is a diverse pool of eighty-seven peoples’ work that spans 276 thick, colourful pages.
