The degrees of love in the Arabic language
2023 Book Design, Arabic Typography | Student Project | Higher Institute for Artistic Industries of Urbino (ISIA U)

In Arabic, there are around fifty words that express the different stages of love. From attraction to desire, from passion to madness, from sadness to lovesickness, and all the nuances in between. This book is a collection of these complex nuances.

Each spread is dedicated to an arabic word, translated into 3 languages (english, italian, french), and expressed through an abstract typographic composition made of the letters of the word.
