what remains from read books?
Editorial Design II Project

“Concretely, what remains from the books we read?”

Is the question that José Luís Peixoto launches in his article “The memory of books”. Assuming this question as a theme, the project “What remains of read books?” intends to communicate an impression of the relationship between the book and its reader in the memory plane.

The idea is materialised in a typographic and imagetic exploration associated with the idea of a page marker as an auxiliary item for memory. The object is divided in sections varying in dimension according to the character of the text — starting from a plane that captures detail, up to a plane that only captures an impression.
