The digital collection Prus Plus consists of three parts.
The first part, The Doll Lexicon (a digital version of the print publication edited by Alina Kowalczykowa and Agnieszka Bąbel), is a helpful guide to the twists and turns in the plot of The Doll and to its historical context and social reality of contemporary Warsaw. The lexicon should be useful both for readers who are only beginning their adventure with The Doll and for those who have read Prus’s masterpiece many times.
Part two, The Warsaws of Prus (a revised version of the application released as a CD by the National Centre for Culture, with the script authored by Bartłomiej Szleszyński, Konrad Niciński and Kamila Tuszyńska and the graphic design by Katarzyna Stanny), which complements the lexicon, is a multimedia narrative about the life and work of Prus in the context of social changes in the Warsaw of his day.
The third part, Novelists on The Doll, is a collection of previously unpublished papers from the panel organised by Dorota Siwicka and Marek Bieńczyk in the Institute of Literary Research of the Polish Academy of Sciences in June 2015.
All parts make use of materials produced in 2012 to commemorate the Year of Bolesław Prus and are an outcome of the collaboration between the Institute of Literary Research of the Polish Academy of Sciences and the National Centre for Culture.
The visual layer makes use of the visual identity created for the Year of Bolesław Prus by Katarzyna Stanny.
