The project consist of a series of publications, revolving around three themes, time, space and the father. The project was an attempt to create poetry with graphic design techniques and not illustrates written poetry with images. Three books were created, with the same size and format, each one of them has its own visual characteristics and its own treatment. The 'Book of Time' consisted of visual poems representing ideas, and translating emotions around time, the feeling of time, time as an object, and other contemplations. The 'Book of the Father,' explores notions of fatherhood, memory and loss. Finally the 'Book of Space' uses the line, a primary graphic element, to create visuals metaphors both representing and happening in the poetic space.
