What do Galileo, Robert Bresson, Ettore Sottsass, St. Francis of Assisi and Robert Walser have in common? They all feature in Fabio Viscogliosi’s Cascade.

Metaphysical reflections, snatches of reminiscence, references to film and literature are all jumbled up in this book.
Structured as a series of variations grouped by the ambient color, it attempts to make time stand still by isolating an idea, memory, or sensation. Vividly-colored, clearly defined shapes are Viscogliosi’s playful building blocks for lively visuals that flirt with abstraction.
A book of both jottings and memories, Cascade tackles the joyous chaos of thought and tries to give it shape(s), recalling the creator’s paintings and album covers.
