This is a book devoted to the memory of Juan (Ifantidis) Andralis, surrealist, typographer, printer, poet, translator, editor, graphic designer, and painter; who had a significant influence on the life and work of several outstanding personalities of art and culture in Buenos Aires, from the early 60's until his early death in 1994.
The book is an elegant weaving of interlocking documents: Personal letters that Juan wrote to close friends, intimate interviews that reveal much of his views on art and life, exciting testimonies from acquaintances and colleagues who portray him in adventures and crazy episodes. All of it is well seasoned with revealing visual material that includes photographs, letters, drawings, designs, printing pieces. This delicate book will slowly immerse you in the genial spirit of a subtle and inspiring figure like that of Juan Andralis.
Andralis is finely printed in two inks and is carefully designed by Zalma Jalluf and its author, Rubén Fontana, who also designed the typeface used in the composition of the book: the ‘Andralis’ family, a tribute to his friend and mentor.
