the objective

The task was simple, an artwork for a debut double album, in compact disc format. But knowing the project so well, I felt that had to me more.

I knew the lyrics deserved more attention, so I asked two illustrators to do one illustration per music/lyric. I wanted them printed on postcards, 20 detachable ones, with 18 illustrations (one for each song) by Margarida Pinto, Vítor Santos and 2 photos by me. These were put together on a A5 cardboard folder, printed with linoleum. The cd were also printed with the same technique. The print on the cd nr 1 is the negative print of the cd nr 2. They came with one cotton tote, also linoleum printed. Numbered limited edition, 99 pieces only.
