Between 1916–1917, Józef Budko made a series of graphics for the Passover Haggadah. They are in a form of sepia etchings printed on a tissue paper and their characteristic features include: precise drawing, soft and pliable lines. The vine motif reappearing in the majority of the etchings symbolizes the people of Israel, and a bunch of grapes — the Promised Land. The drawings contain numerous ornamental initials of Hebrew words which particular parts of the story on the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt begin with. The series of etchings for Passover consists of twenty-six drawings.
