ITALIA QUOTE BOOKLET
Case Study - Mixed Medias
This was a Typography project and turned out to be one of my favorites.
The brief required a Quote Booklet using mixed medias. I chose Italy without knowing that at the time (March 2020) the country was about to be the one suffering the most with COVID-19.
I lived there for some months back in the day and throughout the process I realized this was a chance to show my love and appreciation for that beautiful Country and also to use the inspiration I have learned from it.
I would dedicate myself to this project with love. Italians love their handmade leather journals, the artisan soul for arts and food, their love for wine and coffee.
First I did some research about quotes related to Italy or famous Italian quotes. From there I began my journey of painting with Wine and Coffee and trying to come up with a finished leather Booklet.
Welcome to the process!
