Words from the Editor Elodie Boyer about the project:
This UPO 4 (Unidentified Paper Object) Reading The Sky shows watercolours of the Finnish artist Aino-Maija Metsola, together with stanzas written “on site” by Daniel de Roulet, translated into English with delicacy by Pierre Rusch. Rejane Dal Bello is the designer of this UPO 4, just like for the first three other UPOs. She has shaped it as a type specimen. We believe that beauty is our last resort. We also fight against the idea of borders. In this UPO, there is no territory dedicated to text, design nor art, we intertwin the authors and their productions for our immense pleasure. The paper is actually the last author, showing a new side of the book through its amazing opacity/ transparency. Enjoy
All was left to do was to get the pieces together. We had the text, we had the images, we had the title: Reading the sky. Rejane Dal Bello took the title literally, she went on from there to design an alphabet, typography called Cloud. So what you’re holding in your hands is a specimen of the printing character Cloud 1. You’re starting to identify a pattern, Rejane Dal Bello has left her publisher’s trace in designing the UPOs, one can recognize her rhythm, her flow, her space. I hope this UPO, by its beauty, will help heal our rainy bodies.”
