    Book cover for Abel de Carvalho's book which contains a compilation and analysis of the most common portuguese sayings.
Não desprezes os provérbios | Book cover

Book with the most common portuguese sayings written by Abel de Carvalho. When the briefing was proposed i immediatly decided to go for a typographic solution, the title speaks for himself "Do not understimate the sayings" and for my point of view i thought it was a lot interesting have a cover without images to avoid illustrating a specific or physical object keeping the abstract meanings of each saying. Taking red and black colors to give a strong message and let the text be actually more seen than read trough the involved white space, this approach s
tarted with some calligraphic sketches to maintain a classical and revival solution that the old people and the sayings can provide us sometimes.
