One day in October 2015, some vintage, amateur and family photos were purchased by Ivana Marrone at a flea market. After some time these photos, to which more have been added, have left the trunk and have been sent to writers, songwriters, journalists and cultural operators, to go back with a new story, created especially for them, a new life delivered to anyone who wants to read it. Here are Riscatti.
The book, the first published by Rvm Hub, has three variants of dust jacket: each reproduces a sample pattern from papers decorated with covers and book flaps of the fifteenth and nineteenth centuries, from the collections of the Guarneriana Library of San Daniele del Friuli (UD) and the Letterform Archive in San Francisco (CA). These decorative motifs and the ultra-light monopatinate on which the dust jacket is printed, recall the papers used to protect books or photo albums, or to cover the interior of furniture, boxes, cases, drawers.
