biblioteca chiarelettere


Italian publishing company Chiarelettere asked us to work on the identity for their new series of classic essays, called ‘Biblioteca’.


We wanted to give the covers a strong sense of the authority and timelessness of the books, a challenge for the series’ format: paperback pocket book.



We went for an extremely simple cover design, to emphasize author and title, with a debossed typeface. We decided to experiment on the back, by creating a strong typographical composition of a meaningful quote, almost a manifesto for each book.


The first three books, by Antonio Gramsci, Leon Trotsky and Don Lorenzo Milani, will be in bookshops at the end of May.
