Nocturnes is an elegant art book that evokes the feeling of “moments of release” — like twilight, summer rain and the physical expression of love. Nine short poems are accompanied by a series of delicate images that bring these feelings to life.
The poems, unrhymed sonnets, are printed on translucent vellum — so that an image hovers behind the words until the page is turned.
The design of the book itself contributes to the mood of evanescence and refuge. Two artists responding to the night.
