The artist’s book “Sonata per Gaza” (“Sonata for Gaza”) created in collaboration with the Italian poet Guido Cupani for the artist’s book exhibition “Libri di versi 9”. In the “Tea Book No. 8” I use clean and white paper of teabags together with used brown and burned teabags paper for showing the situation in Gaza. All 18 pages with the poem connected with the metal fastener – you can simply to rebind, to destroy the book, to mix all pages and to make it not readable – fragile peace in Gaza. Page numbers printed by letterpres in Chines red colour the same colour like the rope which connect book with the tea bag on which printed the title of the book “Sonata per Gaza”.
