Edizioni Corraini – Un Sedicesimo magazine
Un Sedicesimo issue #2 – Italo Lupi
Last week we looked at the first part of a package I received from Italian publisher Edizioni Corraini, which included a copy of the Pino Tovaglia book. Today we’ll look at the second part of the package.
Snuggled against the Tovaglia book were 3 issues of Un Sedicesimo magazine. This is the latest venture from Corraini. Each issue has a different author, whose job is to create a sixteen-pages-long project. The website puts it best, “In short, itâ€™s not about speaking of graphics, but making it.” The concept behind the series slightly reminded me of the Nieves titles which I admire as well. The initial launch includes issues from Steven Guarnaccia, Moreno Gentili, MartÃ GuixÃ©, Leonardo Sonnoli, Francesco Dondina, Federico Maggioni, Daniel Eatock, Paul Cox, Italo Lupi, Massimo Pitis, Gianluigi Toccafondo, Giulio Iacchetti, Esther Lee and Gianluigi Colin.
Of the 3 issues I received (Esther Lee, Italo Lupi and Steven Guarnaccia) my favorite was the Esther Lee. The illustrations were great and I appreciated her use of a limited color palette. Check out the red checkerboard leisure suit her characters are wearing in the pictures below. Sign me up! where do I get one?
