Daiquiri Books: Literature for Barmans

Briefing

Estación Diseño proposed to develop a collection of stories by Oscar Wilde. It was requested to design and produce the first title of the collection.

Proposal

Oscar Wilde ended up behind bars and despised by society. This is how Daiquiri Books was born: Literature for Waiters. A publishing house for artists who failed in their ambitions. The collection is conceived as a menu: food for the spirit.

Contribution

The covers decontextualize Wilde from the Victorian aesthetic in which he is traditionally represented. Our bet renews its image by staying true to something essential: its status as "outsider" of its time.

Production

Oscar Wilde's stories are part of a collection called Letras Salvajes. If produced, this collection would incorporate other "cursed" authors such as Arthur Rimbaud, Roberto Bolaño or Alejandra Pizarnik.
