Día de las Librerías
This poster, conceived exclusively for La Mistral bookstore in Madrid, celebrates the fascinating world of bookstores. In my endeavor to capture the essence of this special day, I immersed myself in creating a work that blends vintage charm with distinctive elements of art nouveau.
The masterpiece unfolds across multiple layers around the emblematic figure of Gabriela Mistral, who stands as the inspiring muse of this visual composition. At the top, we catch a glimpse of the city that houses the bookstore at its core, highlighting it as a vital hub of culture and knowledge.
Descending, we immerse ourselves in the next layer, representing the realm of creativity and imagination unleashed by reading. Here, inspiration takes shape in ethereal and evocative forms, reminding us of the magic that unfolds when we delve into the pages of a good book. This segment of the poster aims to be a poetic reminder of how reading can unlock unexplored worlds within ourselves.
The journey through this artistic display culminates in the lower layer, dedicated to the world of writing and reading as fundamental pillars of dreams. Here, pencil strokes capture the very essence of literary activity, emphasizing the importance of words as the raw material for dreams woven by the creative mind.
This poster, meticulously crafted in pencil, stands as an ode to writers and the richness of ancient tales. In its focus on the traditional and artisanal, it seeks to convey the enduring essence of the printed word, paying tribute to the artistic endeavor and literary heritage that connects generations.
