Five thousand kilometers per second

  • Manuele Fior (Italy)

Five thousand kilometers per second tells the story of Piero and Lucia, how they met, fell in love, lived their lives and then meet again years later… Told in 5 chapters that take place at different times in the characters’ lives, Five thousand kilometers per second depicts a modern love story, in a contemporary world where distance and absence are blurred by technology, making disillusion even more cruel. Drawn entirely in stunning water colours, this book revealed Manuele Fior’s talents to the world.
