In the past marriage was clearly a commercial act, certified by the dowry. The dowry was a legal document drawn up before the wedding. It had the form of a private agreement that determined the dowry which the groom would receive from the bride. The nature of the agreement was often political as well as economic. In a humorous mood and in an attempt to connect the past with the present, we drew inspiration for the design of this wedding invitation from the written idiom in which dowries were redacted. The invitation was printed on a letter press on 60gr/m2 paper and on a 22.5χ10.5cm size retro style envelope. Four different stamps were designed and the invitations where sealed and signed one by one by the parents, the best men, the groom and the suggested notary (Chris Trivizas). Read Less

Προικοσύμφωνο
Προσκλητήριο Γάμου
Περιγραφή
Στο παρελθόν ο γάμος αποτελούσε μια ξεκάθαρα εμπορική πράξη, την οποία σφράγιζε τοπροικοσύμφωνο. Ήταν επίσημο έγγραφο, το οποίο συντασσόταν πριν από το γάμο. Είχε τη μορφή ιδιωτικού συμφωνητικού, που καθόριζε την προίκα την οποία θα λάβαινε ο γαμπρός από τη νύφη. Πολλές φορές, πέραν της οικονομικής, αποτελούσε και πολιτική συμφωνία.

Με χιουμοριστική διάθεση και θέλοντας να γεφυρώσουμε το παρελθόν με το παρόν, αντλήσαμε έμπνευση για το σχεδιασμό αυτής της πρόσκλησης γάμου, από το γλωσσικό ιδίωμα με το οποίο συντάσσονταν τα προικοσύμφωνα.

Η πρόσκληση έχει τυπωθεί σε όρθιο πιεστήριο με χρήση κλισέ σε χαρτί 60γρ./μ2, και σε φάκελο με γόμα, διαστάσεων 22,5χ10,5εκ. Σχεδιαστήκαν 4 διαφορετικές σφραγίδες, ενώ οι προσκλήσεις σφραγίστηκαν και υπεγράφησαν μία-μία στο χέρι από τους γονείς, τους κουμπάρους, τον γαμπρό και τον θέσει συμβολαιογράφο (ΧρήστοςΤριβυζάς).
