“Few orders have pleased me as much as the magazine LEER
made me to design the cover of the months of July and August
2013. It was a special issue on summer reading for which I
suggested to build on the pleasures of life linked to the pleasure
of reading. I suggested to the editor of the magazine not only make
an illustration for the cover, but “drawing” the entire cover.
Make a design exercise that included also the name of the journal,
headlines and fixed elements such as price, number, etc …Only the
barcode would not be manually drawn . It was an old idea (drawing
the entire cover of a magazine), which I was finally going
to be able to perform.

The pleasure of touch, smell, taste, sight and hearing.
The pleasure of reading.”
