Forms of Migration explores the potential of literary and aesthetic forms of expression to shape our understanding of transnational migration processes. The volume emphasises form because it is often the compositional structure and rhetoric of texts and images – their literary nature and formal qualities – that impact readers and beholders, opening up new interpretations of im/migrant experiences and identities.

Addressing im/migrant forms of expression around the globe, this rich, illustrated collection includes poetry, creative nonfiction, interviews, analyses of diasporic fashion, cinema, and mixed media installations, as well as performances turned into writing, photographic work, collages, and drawings. Forms of Migration shows us how to apprehend migration differently, through innovative storytelling, offering opportunities to confront the complexity of migration processes.

Indoors Diary of a Pandemic. Nina Fuga. bruno.

These drawings give back the intimacy of the everyday to objects and postures which, exasperated within existing spaces, take new positions and discover new sides to themselves, giving life to a sym­phony of small theatrical pièces where stage and backstage are one and the same.

I disegni, questi disegni, nell’insita tensione del loro tratto, ci consen­tono di immaginare gli altri nel paradosso delle loro esistenze, esploso tra le pareti delle proprie abitazioni e di farci sentire meno soli, meno tristi. Immaginare gli altri e le altre, ci restituisce lo spazio del gioco, dell’assurdo, del surreale che fatichiamo a praticare mentre stiamo seduti sui nostri divani.

15 Horror Stories by Women Workers is an artistic documentary project by Kristina Bozhurska, consisted of 15 testimonies by women workers accompanied by drawings made by the author herself. The book is with dimensions of 11×16 cm and 64 pages representing a pocket edition that can fit in the upper pocket of a worker’s coat. In this sense, design and content-wise, this book becomes a sort of a symbolic pamphlet that disseminates the voices of these women and develops a method for the artistic engagement to gain a new, re-elaborated form and realistically contribute to the issue it thematizes. In the book design we are using the Harour font from Alias Collection, designed by Gareth Hague, as well as the strong blue Pantone – two elements that contribute to the atmosphere from the title itself and the stories told by the women.

A miniseries on drawing

This enticing series of little books approaches drawing in its most specific acceptation, i.e. as a peremptory gesture that is gradually revealed, a tool at the service of thought and a primary form of representation. The pages feature both real and imaginary objects along with the caprices, secrets and flights of fancy of the artists involved. With all the speed and immediacy of a snack, browsing through this finger-lickin’ collection – jam-packed full of mouth-watering tasty tit bits – will certainly whet your appetite. And once you try one, you will keep coming back for more.

170 drawings of the same beautiful cock

What’s wrong with a cock? Nothing at all.
Even less if it is the most beautiful cock in the world,
because a cock doesn’t mean anything but itself:
source of life, source of pleasure.

The life drawings in this book,
made with delight and admiration,
claim to pay tribute to
the most beautiful cock in the world.
