Striking graphic design for an original, moving approach to the work of Michelangelo. Not a philological interpretation, but a novel viewpoint on the genius of the great Renaissance artist.
[Michelangelo. Poetry and sculptures] A striking layout and stunning images accompany
these rhymes written by one of the greatest artists
of all times: a book unique in its genre that reveals
a “different” Michelangelo.
Not everybody knows that the brilliant Renaissance
artist was also an excellent poet and put into rhyme
the most secret part of his complex personality.
He never published his rhymes, but he selected
89 of them for a hypothetical collection. Electa has now
asked one of the major international scholars
to select the images of Michelangelo’s sculptures
to accompany these rhymes.
Combining Michelangelo’s poetry and images
of the sculptures, this book offers an unusual
and fascinating view of Michelangelo,
the Renaissance man.
