Driven by my interest for materials, how loaded they are with tactile and visual information and inspired by Georges Pérec’s quote “We can touch. We can allow ourselves to dream.”, Touching Worlds took form. It is a book that embodies the materiality of books. A catalog of materials that are present in different sorts of publications, from paper to hard stock and leather.
Depending of the kind of publication, elements such as the paper, the cover, the endpapers and the binding change. While holding book, feeling its format and weight and the rest of its physical qualities, the reader starts dreaming about its content, even before reading the first line.
