A Novel by José Saramago & A Documentary by João Jardim
- The concept for the 4-page spread was to come up with an illustrated word, which I chose to be "BLNDNESS" and from that developed an article on one of my favorite contemporary writers, José Saramago, author of Blindness & Death With Interruptions (you can check my book cover design for it here).
The whole concept behind the book is that half of humanity has sudendly become blind by this white light and half can still see. Hundreds of brutal actions start to take place. So in the end, who are the ones who can really see, the blinded one or the ones who have kept their sight?
The book has a direct link to João Jardim's documentary about blindness.
