altered books : tango

 

Tango was exhibited at the MCBA Jerome Foundation BookArts Mentorship Exhibition, at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts, Minneapolis, 2007.

Format, text and images are designed to emphasize the rhythmic structure of the music and the mood of the lyrics.

It was Enrique Santos Discepolo, one of the most talented lyricist, who said: “El tango es una tristeza que se baila / Tango is a sadness that one dances”.
