Covers for a book of Haiku poetry by João Varella, a result of his experimentation in pushing the boundaries of Haiku, at times respecting, others breaking the rules of this art form. These explorative poems have also been interpreted visually by the illustrator FP Rodrigues. The book had a limited print run of 1,000 copies. And each cover of its 1,000 copies was manually printed with acrylic paints using stencils of the numbers 42 and 7, overlapping in different positions and colors. These combinations created a myriad of graphic results, from more legible covers to very abstract ones, allowing each cover to become unique.
