book cover

Vasto Devasto is the third novel by Filippo Pasqui, a young Italian author who asked me to help bring to life the cover of his latest work. The protagonist is Graziano, a 77-year-old man who lives in the countryside of Arezzo and who, at a certain point, decides to leave everything behind and embark on an adventure.

The quirky aspect of the story is what I wanted to highlight, combining collages, vibrant colors, and an embroidery that envelops the protagonist. The used font is not a proper one, since it’s my handwriting made using my non-dominant hand, to give the impression of an old man writing something.
