Created for Projeto Publishing House. Written by Carlos Urbim & Claudia Tajes, and Illustrated by Fabio Zimbres. This title was the publisher’s first publication for an adult audience and should look like a little guide, highlighting the key moments of a father and a mother discovering their “pregnancy”.
The visual narrative was created by dividing the pages into two points of view: at the top, we find the father’s thoughts; on the bottom, the mother’s ones. Fabio Zimbres’ illustrations were created based on the white spaces caused by the dynamic layout of the text, varying throughout the book, alternating the pace of reading.
The graphic print production provides a different tactile experience: the cover is gray cardboard with screen printing, the spine is an apparent brown stitching bound and the format was chosen to facilitate the handling.
