TAPAS #1: A Fraction of the Whole
Between 1953 and 1959, lithographer and artist Luis Seoane compiled some of the illustrations and artwork appearing on the covers of books that he had worked on as a publisher and printed them in three volumes. These books were created while in exile during the Spanish Civil War, a time when many European artists and intellectuals found shelter in Argentina, and they encapsulate his contribution to the “golden age of Argentine book publishing”. Seoane’s cataloguing work inspired the ‘Tapas’ project, which ventures into a line of inquiry tracing back to this compilatory effort. In this first edition, the boundaries between artistic creation and editorial design become blurred.
