  Gerard Ciolek, bookplate #1, 20KB
[A bookplate ("ex-libris") #1 for Gerard Ciolek.
A linocut. Black ink on cream-coloured typing paper.
Original size approx. 8x10 cm.
Designer: Gerard Ciolek, late 1941 or early 1942 (cf. strong similarity to ex-libris #2).
(This exlibris was previously erroneously dated by TMC (in Jul 2006) as a design from late 1930s, say ?1938).
A motif of a generic park, with an allusion to a portico of the Belweder Palace, Warsaw
(cf. G. Ciolek. 1954. Ogrody Polskie. p.118), and the family's coat of arms.]
  Gerard Ciolek, bookplate #2, 20KB
[A bookplate ("ex-libris") #2 for Gerard Ciolek.
A linocut. Metallic "golden" ink on brown packing paper.
Original size approx. 4.5x4.5 cm.
Designer: Gerard Ciolek, Aug or Sep 1941, Warszawa.
(This exlibris was previously erroneously dated by TMC (in Jul 2006) as a design from late 1944, or early 1945, thought to be created while being interned as a POW in German camps in Pomerania/North Germany)
This homely design, adapted from an approx. 4.5x10.0 cm invitation to the G.C.'s birthday celebrations (on 24 Sep 1941), echoes the family's crest element of the bookplate #1.]
  Gerard Ciolek, bookplate #3, 20KB
[A bookplate ("ex-libris") #3 for Gerard Ciolek.
A linocut. Black ink on beige packing paper.
Original size approx. 8x10 cm.
Designer: Gerard Ciolek, early 1950s (?1952).
A motif alluding to baroque figures of cherubs in the Wilanow Palace, Warsaw (cf. G. Ciolek. 1954. Ogrody Polskie. p. 105), and to the family's coat of arms.]
  Gerard Ciolek, bookplate #4, 20KB

[A bookplate ("ex-libris") #4 for Gerard Ciolek.
A two-part linocut. Red and brown ink on white glossy paper. Original size approx. 7x7 cm.
Designer: Tadeusz Przypkowski, late 1950s (?1958).
A motif of a head of a Ciolek/Minotaur located in the heart of a garden labyrinth.
