People is the most recent book from Blexbolex, a French illustrator now working in Berlin. Blexbolex’s style references printmaking techniques, and is built from layering graphic shapes.

Everything about this book is so beautiful! The illustration is done in perfect color harmonies, and each person seems alive. The creamy, matte paper is bound with a mustard yellow cover, and wrapped in a two-sided printed jacket.

Like his last book, Seasons, Blexbolex uses each 2-page spread to express an idea, with one word illustrated on each page. “Homeless Person” on the left, shows a man sleeping in a cardboard box. “Camper” on the right, shows a girl lounging in a field. It’s a little puzzle, forcing you to think about similarities and differences between different human activities and professions.
