Quaderni della valle camonica 2
it is a drawing book where there are already numerous drawings traced with tools of stone on stone brought here from far away from the camonica valley some three thousand years ago...
Figure (figures), the second of quaderni della valle camonica, is a folding game, where the pages overlap and intertwine, opening and closing to create an infinite variety of shapes, from those printed on paper ... or engraved on the rocks of the Camonica Valley.
This piece of visual and tactile workmanship, which developed during a workshop devised to illustrate the wonderful heritage of rock engravings of the Camonica Valley, has given life to three “notebooks” on its rocks, figures and the work of the archaeologist. Short texts and pages with stratified drawings in relief actively illustrate the knowledge, customs and expressions of a lively, multifarious popular culture.
The Figure notebook is edited by Elena Turetti, with a design project by Claude Marzotto, Nicola Ballarini and Swan Lefevre. It accompanies the other two books in the series: Rocce (rocks) and L’archeologo (the archaeologist).
