literature in movement
Editorial Design II Project

“Literature in movement” arises from a young girl’s dream in which she put her books dancing to the sound of her own words; by gaining life, and waves, there was energy residing and resisting in them. A dream of a girl passionate for books, dance, and typography, who imagined how would it be if, one day, fed up with the dust on the bookshelf, a book started to dance.

It consists of a selection of 5 excerpts from Portuguese writers interpreted by 5 dancers, subsequently interpreted in a graphic language that unites symbols, images, and words in order to transmit movement, resulting in 5 new books and a website where the original dances can be viewed.
