festina lente libros : 8 soles de viaje

festina_lente_01 I'm in love a little bit. 8 Soles de Viaje is a darling masterpiece, from the independent Columbian publisher, Festina Lente Libros. The story was written by Juliana Toro Suarez and Natalia Peez Penagos; illustrations by Natalia Perez Penagos; and calligraphy by Juliana Toro Suaez. The book was created as a personal project and their statement below explains a bit more:

8 soles de viaje is the diary of an anonymous traveler who goes to another galaxy trying to escape from his own reality, revealing human situations through the metaphor of a journey. While El inventario de palabras, is the explorer's legacy in the shape of an A-Z bestiary of creatures he has found in his life, simulating stereotypes of the everyday people. The first book is constructed from a single strip of paper that unfolds much like any journey, while the second contains twenty six postcards meant for the reader to send away. Our books are meant to form emotional bonds through narrative, empathy, and the aesthetic love for an object.
