The (Christmas) book on the nightstand: the Orma Editore Packages series
They have been defined poor and beautiful – and that’s how I wish Christmas gifts were.
The “Christmas gifts hunting” can not be compared to that of a birthday or anniversary gift. At Christmas it’s the time spent on research to be valuable, not the material of which the object glitters, the time used to its realization, the “handmade” that makes it unique. And that’s the difference, you can see it in the light that illuminates the eyes of those who receives the gift.
L’Orma Editore with the series Packages gives us a wonderful gift idea: letters, stories, speeches collected in a simple and refined packaging, ready to be sent out with a stamp of 1.50 euro. It’s a vintage-looking booklet wrapped in a simple paper, which hides a cover inspired by art nouveau style; it has only an old-style appearance because the postcard book is a beautiful and original idea.
Free to choose among 25 proposals: Shakespeare, Bronte, Austen, Apollinaire, Cervantes, Shelley, Woolf, Pessoa, Kafka, Svevo, Pirandello are just some of the great classics; you can make a gift to your friends, classmates, boyfriends, husbands, wives or acquaintances because
the Packages are a gift of thought, a thought freed.
