Coses petites = Little things
Three handmade books encased in slip case with the title, "Coses Petites" die cut. Poems are accompanied by illustrations, all of it written and edited collaboratively by Anna Aguilar-Amat and Francesc Parcerisas, and inspires by Arundhati Roy's novel 'The God of Small Things.' Their process on creating the poems started with "[one naming] a subject (apple, wine, garlic, candles, sugar). The other would write four or vie lines about it, and then hand it over for editing. Modifications would be at times drastic, other times minimal. In some cases two very different versions emerged, as in the poems 'Paper' or 'Finger.' In those instances, the poets chose to retain both versions, having them appear side by side."—info from the publisher. Text in English with the original Catalan. Signed and dated by one of the artists.
