In addition to showing the work of the famous Hungarian-born photographer Eva Besnyö, a typographic layout had to be designed in order to accomodate 3 languages (Portuguese, Dutch & English). This is done through the creation of a grid that allows for different column widths which carry 3 different typefaces at different sizes. The book makes use of 2 papers, one for the text section and a finer reproduction quality one for the images. The cover, using a rich yellow fine paper board with hand-glued images set in relief blocks, and design of the book in general, aims to convey the warm human quality of Besnyö’s work.
