July 7,1882 – June 28, 1942 – was the pen name of Ivan Daminikavich Lutsevich, a Belarusian poet and writer. Kupala is considered one of the greatest Belarusian-language writers of the 20th century. Kupala's first serious literary attempt was Ziarno, a Polish-language sentimental poem which he completed around 1903–1904 under the pseudonym "K-a." His first Belarusian-language work ("Мая доля") was dated July 15, 1904. Kupala's first published poem, "Мужык" ("Peasant"), was published approximately a year later, appearing in Belarusian in the Russophone Belarusian newspaper Severo-Zapadnyi Krai (Northwestern Krai) on May 11, 1905. A number of subsequent poems by Kupala appeared in the Belarusian-language newspaper Nasha Niva from 1906 to 1907.

The posters were worked out in Adobe Photoshop. A suitable photograph of a person, whose portrait will afterwards be the center of the poster composition, was selected. By copying a text fragment from the biography of a person (in their native language) the text shape of the portrait was created over the photograph. The font was selected to be suitable by style to the portrait and to depict the person’s qualities. The posters were printed on matte paper in A1 size. This size offers the opportunity not only to accept the image in the whole, but also to take a closer look at the high level of the posters granularity.
