Athens Special – Le Tour
Athens special le tour is a personal city guide featuring Vassilis Kallidis’ favorite spots on an abstract map. Street photography and index-like typography aim to capture the nostalgic, slightly kitsch and decadent feeling of the city. Inspired by his tour, Vasilis presents his new recipes in a book within the main book. The recipe section is designed with the same mentality but, as if it was created separately with its own cover, rules, grids, even page numbering. The visuals in both parts convey everyday Athenian cliches blended with a pinch of tradition and a twisted surreal feel, with great reference to the hand drawn signage. As an extra, a 2-side poster that is a practical telephone directory of the shops listed, or a decorative promotional tool for the new book.
