Lolita

I want pure colors, melting clouds, accurately drawn details, a sunburst above a receding road with the light reflected in furrows and ruts, after rain. And no girls. … Who would be capable of creating a romantic, delicately drawn, non-Freudian and non-juvenile, picture for LOLITA (a dissolving remoteness, a soft American landscape, a nostalgic highway—that sort of thing)? There is one subject which I am emphatically opposed to: any kind of representation of a little girl. (Vladimir Nabokov)

The book cover is also paratextual material that has the potential to influence the reading of a text: It may distort or illuminate, editorialize, and even invent subjects and situations that do not exist in the text.


Lolita: The Story of a Cover Girl (public library) addresses through a magnificent collection of concept covers for the Nabokov classic, which editors John Bertram and Yuri Leving describe as planted “firmly in the public consciousness, but more often for its misunderstood subject than for its masterful and dazzling prose,” by eighty of the world’s most celebrated graphic designers and illustrators, including such favorites as Paula Scher, Jessica Hische, and Debbie Millman.

Andy Warhol

Modena Musset, 1968
catálogo/livro de artista com fotografias de Andy Warhol





"Published by Moderna Musett, Sweden in 1968 as an exhibition catalogue for the show "Andy Warhol" at the Moderna Museet in Stockholm, February - March, 1968. With virtually no text except for some of Warhol's famous quotes, the book contains numerous full page black and white illustrations of iconic Warhol images as well as hundreds of black and white photographs by Rudy Burkhardt, Eric Pollitzer, John Schiff, and Stephen Shore that provide incredible insight into the remarkable creativity of Andy Warhol. Writing about the book in their photobook reference work “The Photobook: A History, Volume 2”, Parr and Badger stated, "It is a fine example of the catalogue-as-artist's-book, a form that ostensibly began with the Dadaists and Surrealists, and is produced with some of the roughest reproductions ever seen, which are entirely appropriate, and supplemented by a long section of Factory snapshots by Billy Name. The genre was revitalized by the Pop movement, and Warhol in particular, which demonstrates his position as a latter-day Dadaist. The Moderna Museet publication especially had a great influence upon Japanese photography in the late 1960s and 1970s, particularly the photobooks of the Provoke era.”

e. e. cummings



A capa acima é a ampliação de um dos poemas e foi desenhada por Alexandre Wollner em parceria com Geraldo de Barros.

“Absolutamente nada, nem mesmo a minha profunda apreciação dos extraordinários trabalhos que você teve com as suas traduções, pode me persuadir a renunciar às provas”, escreveu cummings em uma carta ao tradutor, e também poeta, Augusto de Campos, durante o processo de composição do livro.

  Traces of the Calligrapher: Islamic Calligraphy in Practice, c. 1600–1900

In Islamic culture, calligraphy has long been considered a quintessential art form. This beautiful writing practice constitutes an expression of piety, and calligraphers are among the most highly esteemed artists. Traces of the Calligrapher portrays the intimate world of the calligrapher during the early modern period of Islamic culture. It brings together the “tools of the trade”—works in their own right that are rarely exhibited or published—and the exquisite art made with these functional objects in India, Iran, and Turkey. (Yale University Press)
