The Captain doesn't remember his name

"The Captain don´t remember his name" is a picture book for children of at least 5 years old published by Tándem Edicions.


It is mainly an aesthetic book, with big images, very little text and a slow rhythm that invites contemplation. The project started as an exercise, half of the illustrations were made first, then the text for them was written and later on the rest of the illustrations were made for said text.


The text itself is very simple. It uses enumeration as a reference to traditional tales. The sequence of illustrations follows a symmetric structure.


The illustrations were part of the 2008 edition of the international illustration show "L´Immagine della Fantasia" in Sármede, Italy.
