Illustrated Short Stories by Jorge Amado Box Set

selection of 10th adg brazilian graphic design biennial (2013)

the publisher invited three graphic artists to illustrate three of Jorge Amado’s short stories, creating a collection of small and colourful books. The delicate graphic design guided each artist to use four colours, the same four shades that would be used for printing each book. typesetting the text in one colour picked from the illustrations was considered enough to bring particularity to the design, which was already well complemented by images and icons for covers, spreads, opening pages and endpapers. designed with kiko farkas from máquina estúdio.
