Anatol Girs (1904–1990) painter, graphic artist, typographer, editor. Together with the sculptor and graphic artist Bolesław Barcz (1906–1944) they were partners of the applied graphics studio Atelier Girs-Barcz in Warsaw from 1931. They designed mainly publishing and advertising graphics. In 1944, Girs was taken to Oświęcim (Auschwitz) and lived to see the end of the war in the Dachau camp. He emigrated to the United States, where he founded a bibliophile publishing house. Barcz was killed by a bomb during the Warsaw Uprising. In the same explosion the atelier with equipment, publications and graphic works burnt down. Anatol Girs in 1935–1937 designed the Militari typeface. He also worked on the Vistula Uncial, which was almost finished in September 1939.
