The Library

Awakening

A tribute to the founder of my hometown’s first library

During 2012, I got a request from the city hall of my hometown to create a poster for the yearly book fair. It is a tribute to Ricardo Conejo, the founder of our city’s first library. Concept-wise, a wooden hand is holding the book of the city behind the initial letters of his name “Ricardo Conejo”. The wooden hand represents the hand of Ricardo, I chose wood because the old library of my village has beautiful antique wood shelves. Coming out of the book is a ribbon with the “A” of Archidona (the city’s name), and an octagon which is the iconic symbol of the city. Paloma Rincón, the famous photographer, helped to make it possible. With her perfect technique, we got the tactile look and feel that I was looking for.
