It was a real pleasure for me to design the 1st english edition of Curandero book. Curandero is written by Victor Oscar Perez and illustrated by Mildo Matos.
This book recounts stories and ancecdotes, seemingly fantastic at times, which form part of the local collective imagination of Baracoa, Cuba.
It includes a detailed glossary of common ailments and their cures. This study, the fruit of 30 years of research, is perhaps the only written account of the historical evolution of Baracoan curanderismo from pre-Columbian times to the present.
Quick specs: 88 pages, paperback cover with flaps, 150x210x10 mm
It was a real pleasure for me to design the artwork + shooting macro photographs for the 1st edition of Vi capovolgo l’uomo… e ve lo rimetto in sesto book. Vi capovolgo l’uomo… e ve lo rimetto in sesto is written by Salvo Guadagnino.
This book is a scientific essay about potential and characteristics of the human tongue. It includes the GIO (Gravity Instinctive Opposition), an innovative method invented by the speech terapist Salvo Guadagnino in order to obtain the so called “resest muscolare”.
Vi capovolgo l’uomo… e ve lo rimetto in sesto is finally available online!
