Pignatari Collection

DesignerGustavo Piqueira
Entry Description

Graphic project for a book collection comprised of three titles by Décio Pignatari, one of the pioneers of Brazilian concrete poetry, each presenting different narrative forms: chronicles, dramaturgy and short stories. The words and letters on the covers are displayed almost as independent elements, fragments of the name of the author and title which are loosely pieced together, allowing for a myriad of different reading possibilities and, and, just as the author's work, playing within the boundaries of visual and written expression. According to the publishing house sales are going well, and some of the titles of the collection are already going into their second print run.
