    Contains the poem
    "Today" by Alberto Veca:

    Light, a trace
    however visible to a patient research
    : it is the advice of Arianna today. [...]

    These initial lines suggested to me the subject of the print contained within the book: a reference to the female figure, almost a doll, with precious embroidery, the result of a patient research of the subtle texture.
    The doll is for Arianna, the granddaughter that Alberto Veca remembers in the text. Missed after a
    few days of existence , she made a very short journey into the world: Yet you have gained experience - writes Veca - the whole experience and the last gesture was not the same as the first .

    The outside of the book offers the subtle mark of a dry print obtained with a chalcographic press from a fabric matrix, an embroidery, another patient journey, the one traced by needle, thread and hand that claim the skillful making of industrious hands.
