A visual book
More about the project
Aldo Palazzeschi was an Italian author who lived during the first half of the 20th century. Although he worked for some time with the Futurists, his style remained unique, and his ideas were always original.
Palazzeschi often uses a fragmented writing style and sometimes his works become a series of unexpected associations of words and concepts. The idea was to produce the same effect in a visual way, so for each poem was realized an illustration with the technique of collage.
The collages are composed of two main elements: pieces of artworks, or part of them, and brush strokes. The artworks are all gathered from 20th century’s production, and they always refer in some way to the content of the single poem.
