Title of Work
The graphic design of this book intention was, from the choice of the cover material that simulates the skin of an animal, to bring the reader closer to the experience narrated in the book: the story of Stevenson’s journey through the Cevennes accompanied by the donkey Modestine. Inside the book, the layout of the text – aligned only by the outer margins, without breaking the paragraphs – recreates the visual universe of the trip, causing the reader to scroll through the pages of the book as follows a path, punctuated by curves, ascents, descents, narrows, lowlands. The serif typeface used is Kai Bernau’s Lyon Text, and the sans serif is LL Brown by Aurèle Sack. The book was printed on Bold Pollen paper 90g/m2 in the Ipsis graphics, in March 2016.
