Darya Martynova
The Infinite Garden. Illustrated poetry book

Un-commissioned | Professional

Why did you make this work:
“The Infinity garden” is my first experience with poetry. When I read it, I feel music and rhythms which I tried to express graphically. I decide to use calligraphy to express pulsates of poetry. Illustrations aren’t literally but tell their own story. Graphics meets text and elaborates the meaning. Harmony connection of word and picture - is what the project about.

"The Infinite Garden" was printed in a limited edition of 500 copies. Hardcover, 112 pages, 150x170mm.

How did you make this work:
