L’art d’être grand-père (The Art of Being a Grandfather, original French edition), by Victor Hugo
Prepared for the International Competition of the 14th World Biennial of Art Bookbinding, held in Paris, France, in 2017. Technique: the cover of the book has been constructed with the shaving of the lowered skin. Bridles, author and title of the work made with the same material spare. Edges carved and painted with acrylic. The details of the cover in cotton thread are a metaphor for the work written in verse, as well as of childhood, the theme of the poem. 29 x 20 cm 2016-2017

Prepared for the International Competition of the 16th World Art Bookbinding Biennial, held in Paris, France, in 2022. The design of the bookbinding refers to the mystery of the African savannah. On the front cover we see, in a synecdoche, the eye of the stalking lion; and on the back cover, through the undergrowth, the color of its body. Technique: bound in “chagreen” goatskin. Edges carved and painted with acrylic. Hand woven bridles. The book covers have been made with the weaving technique on a four-frame loom: a textile made with strips of leather and cotton thread by the textile designer Mariel Andrea Tapia Luna. The letters on the spine of the book, the author and the title, have been made in embossing 29 x
