Versos de respirar are a collection of poems written by José António Franco.
Illustrations and Graphic Design by me.
Illustrations made with brush and ink, and digital colors.
One of the challenges i had in this book was that the writter didn't want the illustrations to overpower the text.
So my idea was to have the characters eyes or bodies pointing out to the poems.
Since the poems have a lot of rythim and energy i used a layout that would reinforce that, so the side where the text appears changes everytime.
