A handsome book for a project that covered a myriad of artistic mediums and expressions throughout the city of Guimarães. It doesn’t seem to matter how many times I see chipboard covers with exposed binding, I am alway a sucker for that deconstructed approach—especially when it comes with nice typography.

Project Description

"O Castelo em 3 Atos" (The Castle in 3 Acts) was a project integrated in the Art and Architecture programme of Guimarães 2012 European Capital of Culture, curated by Paulo Cunha e Silva. This multifaceted project was based on several approaches in a wide range of different events: contemporary art exhibitions, performances, cinema, literature and conferences.

Production Lesson(s)

Using a mix of production techniques and papers together with a chromatic set was a way to represent the several areas of the project: contemporary art exhibitions, performances, cinema, literature and conferences.”
