This book, also in English and Polish, includes excellent texts about Polish culture and history as well as incorporating spectacular photographs of the reconstruction of this amazing historical edifice which took 17 years from 1971 to 1988. It forms part of the Old Town of Warsaw which has been placed on UNESCO’s World Heritage Register in the highest category of historical monuments from around the world.

​Mark Krawczynski also presented an elegant hitorical book about the most famous Polish engineer Rudolf M​odrzejewski who designed the greatest number of bridges (more than 30) of any engineer in the world.Most of these were built in the US. The most famous of them was the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge. Towards the end of his life he had changed his name to Ralph Modjeski and not many people, even of Polish descent, know about the amazing creative output of this incredible engineer.
