Production Narrative

by J.Drucker

The production seems to follow standard offset procedure, with the prepress done digitally and/or in older poste-up techniques.

Critical Analysis

Design Features

typographic: The text is set in a ten-point (seeming) humanistic font, with the original Italian in a size that is two points (or so) smaller. The type is a bit broken up, either from the quality of the original setting or from the photographic processing, so it appears rather delicate.

imagery: None.

graphical: A line across each page separates the translations from the original Italian below.

openings: In the text-based openings, the horizon line separating translation and original aligns, and a sense of continuity prevails. These openings alternate with ones on which a floor plan or section division are noted.

textual: Texts are the graffiti transcriptions. They are brief and thus suggestive, poignant, or banal by turns.
