Eight gliòmmeri

Reggio Emilia, 2022, in large quarter (37,5x28 cm) with free sheets, Magnani veiled paper of old and good production, cover in Alcantara paper by Sicars of Catania, pp. 42 in free sheets, with Roversi's eight unpublished gliòmmeri accompanied by as many original graphic works, signed in pencil, by some of the most important Italian engraving artists of today (Gianni Verna, Raffaello Margheri, Laura Stor, Maurizio Boiani, Ezio Camorani, Nella Piantà, Stefano Grasselli, Isabella Branella, plus on the cover the etching, also signed, by Agim Sako). The "illustrations" form a sort of specimen of the main graphic techniques, from the most ancient (xylography) to the most modern (lithography). The texts in turn are a very interesting compendium of Roversi's poetics. They are preceded by a writing by Marzio Dall'Acqua and Marco Fiori and an explanatory note by Antonio Bagnoli. The edition is 20 copies numbered in Arabic numerals ad personam, XX copies in Roman numerals, ten in letters from A to L. The texts, in Garamond, Augustea, Egizio and Carla font were printed, like the engravings, on the hand presses of the Laboratorio F.lli Manfredi of Reggio Emilia, which also took care of the graphic design and binding.
