The Cork Book
The Cork Book is a book about cork that tells all the aspects of this extraordinary material. Conceived by the designer Filipe Alarcao for Amorim, the world’s leading producer of cork. The volume carries on the cover the word Co-Rk composed on two lines, as if it were the initials of a chemical element of the periodic table, as iron (FE), copper (CU) and gold (AU). In the pages of the book, contemporary visual codes are used, superimposed on a classic nineteenth-century encyclopedia language.
