O mundo codificado (The Codified World)

Cosac Naify, São Paulo, Brazil, 2007

Description

This book has a plastic jacket and the title is printed in spot UV varnish. The difficulty in reading it reinforces the title’s meaning: The Codified World. Inside, a grid of subtle horizontal silver lines crosses the book, becoming distorted in the title pages. This grid creates an atmosphere that dialogs with the abstract and futurist content.

Juror Notes

We saw a number of instances where hairline elements were incorporated. This piece uses them poetically to complement the book’s content.
