About

“VISUAL POETRY” is a collection of illustrations and writings combined to create an unconventional poetry project that is mean to be “seen”, rather than just read. 

This is an eclectic book for those who love poetry, graphic design, illustration … Or those who simply enjoy thinking outside the box.

It is my hope that this little experiment will become a space for all of them, surpassing the stereotypes and prejudices. I am curious (and hopeful) if it will, at least, encourage people to be bold and lose the fear of trying new things and failing. That’s certenly something that I learn while creating it. I know it’s a hefty order for such a small piece of paper, but it’s worthwhile.

I have always been an eager reader, but for some reason I wasn’t able to connect with poetry. Everything changed around a year ago, when I discovered Mar Aguilar’s delicate poetry and prose. My head started boiling with new ideas, seeing metaphors in every single letter. Suddenly those poems were loaded with lots of visual potential. It was then when I understood that poetry itself was a foreign territory for graphic designers. 

Short after, I asked the author if she was interested in collaborating with me as a partner in crime in this experiment. With Mar’s enthusiastic approval, I started translating her verses to a visual language, using graphic design to explode the principles underlying each discipline. We would went through this process together, discussing every possible meaning and polishing new ideas.

This reinterpretation adds a completely fresh dimension in contrast to traditional poetry, words are no longer conceived only as literary works but also as pieces of art by their own right.  Topics as hope, disillusion and freedom collide in this short book, providing an in-depth analysis of the  , showing how graphic design and poetry are closer than we thought.

Risks and challenges

I want to make sure that I follow the schedule, running the campaign smoothly and keeping shipments on date. Printing companies have already been contacted to ensure that the product will be a high quality one, and that it will be ready on time. As for the rewards, it's very difficult to estimate what will be the costs for shipping them, delays might occur if you are not from Europe, in which case I beg the backers to be patient while waiting for their rewards.
