Esoedizioni (1954-2005)

In 1954, Nuvolo and the poet Emilio Villa worked together on a particular form of “artists’ book,” printed in 60 copies in identical typographic forms, pages and text, but with different covers and inside pictures. A hybrid of unique and industrial multiple specimen, the result was called “Esoedizione” by the poet, to describe a type of book outside the limits of traditional publishing. The experiment was repeated with Villa on two other occasions and a single time with the artist’s former partisan comrade, Vinci Grossi, in 1971. After a long interruption, the project restarted in 2002 when the artist printed, in the XVIII Century Città di Castello typography, a new cycle of “esoedizioni” including essays and poems by artists, critics and Nuvolo’s friends and new cycles by the artist, this time obtained with the help of the electronic creation along with his son Paolo, and redefined manually with the support of the assistant Marco Baldicchi.
