Between Folds / Bananas is inspired by the content of this British literary newspaper and by Russian Constructivist graphics. This newspaper contains stories and essays by some of the most influential British writers. In this work Francisca pays homage to constructivist graphic design by using its most characteristic elements: she creates a diagonal with a close-up of the letter ‘A’, and builds up the content of the newspaper at an angle. This work was privately commissioned.
