who murdered the minutes

Illustration, Layout, Poster

Illustrated as a fairy tale for adults, with a distinctive tension in typography,
to undertone the deeply emotional character of the poem.

Who murdered the minutes, is a series of three illustrations based
on a poem of Henry Treece, a 20th century British poet and writer
who also worked as a teacher and editor.

This emblematic poem became also a song, and part of the Joan Baez’s album “Baptism”.
The three figures are the main characters of the poem:
the soldier, the priest and the lover.

A trilogy based on these characters is presented here with highly geometric
characteristics and bright colours, as a fairy tale for adults,
and as contrast to the highly politicised and sentimental depth of the poem.​​​​​​​
