About this work:Rafael Alberti relates in his autobiography La arboleda perdida how he has, since childhood, always been attracted to the letters of the alphabet, «not to its sound or meaning, but to its graph, the visual representation of the letters that make up a word». In 1975, during his exhile in Rome, he created the portfolio Il lirismo dell'Alfabeto, a homage to the alphabet, of 50 plates created with the most diverse techniques. To each letter he dedicated a black and white and a colour print, both signed and numbered by him. The colour version is done with the techiques of lithography, silkscreen, xilography or etching. The black and white version is always a silkscreen.
The complete portfolio of Il lirismo dell'Alfabeto contains, besides of the 50 plates (25 in colour and 25 in black and white), a colour plate with the poem «Il lirismo dell'Alfabeto». It also includes a detailed sheet about the edition and the techniques used. The case is lined with Iris cloth and measures 65 x 50 cm.
