Fotolio & Typicon

It’s all about the illustrations in this book. A self-promotion based on a love poem you are carried along by a dense black background, white typography and lines, and red details. And I am in love with the painted hands that hold it, bridging the concept to its presentation.

Project Description

The poem is a modern erotic tragedy. A couple in love faces fierce opposition in their love of the surroundings, to the point that the girl, not withstanding the outcry, commits suicide .It is essentially a plaintive monologue of the poet to his sweetheart who takes the character of erotic confession, even though there is no longer the possibility of receiving a response.

The yield of illustration is abstract, there are no specific characters protagonists, that each reader can find his own projections and to identify a variety of ways with the couple in love. White figures on a black background, triangular shapes with sharp corners, handwritten words and phrases attributed to parallelism with grief, pain and anger of loss that flood the poet.
