A notebook wrapped in the kind of special paper used by butchers in the traditional butcher shops of Palermo: waxed paper on the outside, and pink paper on the inside. The ex voto (a traditional religious Sicilian token) is made with flour, water and food colours, and represents either hearts or two hands together.
The Carnet de Rêves are just the perfect thing to keep your dreams safe.
Edizioni Precarie (Precarious Edition) is a project that uses the traditional food-wrapping paper of the markets in Palermo to create notebooks and other objects. This paper has a very special consistency, with its patterns and colors and it gives life to unique objects that tell the story of Palermo's markets, a "precarious" reality which is slowly disappearing.
The disappearance of Sicilian traditions serves as a staring point for a deeper reflection on precariousness as a phenomenon of our time, which touches all.
