A TIME OF WAR
Selected for the LDC 2020 awards’ longlist!
‘A Time of War’ explores the indoctrination of young women in Fascist Italy.
It’s a coming of age story for teenagers and adults, and it focuses on Graziella, a girl who’s forced to grow up quickly in a climate of ideologic rigour and war-induced poverty.
The long form book mixes pastel drawings and watercolours with ephemera from Fascist times, including old letters, photographs, notebooks, school books and report cards.
It’s a work in progress and it’s been entirely handmade by Bruna Martini.
The book is available English and Italian.
