Sul fronte del porto

Three sample illustrations from Sul fronte del porto (On the Waterfront) by Ivano Baldassarre, published by La Cicala editore. For this book I made three kind of illustrations: the full double-page pictures, shown below...

then, the full single-page pictures, shown below...

...and finally the "symbols", cut-out drawings of objects, small enough to be placed among the text, shown here below.

All was done in pencil art, a technique I always loved, and hope to use again in the future. I choose this techinque for the project also to give the feel of old black-and-white photos, since the core part of the novel is settled between the 1930s and the 1960s.
