Conference "Solcs: Joana Raspall's haikus illustrated by Conxi Rosique"


Next 27th of March Imma Cauhé Raspall, daughter of the poet Joana Raspall, Conxi Rosique, illlustrator, and the poet Miquel Desclot will present the book Solcs, a compilation of 50 haikus by Joana Raspall and Juanola published by Editorial Gregal. A work that combines graphic design and poems, with line drawings made with Chinese ink.

Poet, lexicologist, librarian, teacher, activist and writer, Joana Raspall (1913-2013) lived to cultivate language. She wrote theatre, fiction and especially poetry for adults and children. She was also author of dictionaries and, especially, she was pioneer in children's and youth poetry. She wanted young people to love poetry. Haikus were an important part of her work. Since she started to compose them she always did it true to the Japanese structure, managing to make what is complicated seem simple.

Solcs (Editorial Gregal) is a symbiosis between graphic design and poems, line drawings made with Chinese ink that draw feelings with apparent abstraction and deepen into simplicity and precision of the haiku structure. Conxi Rosique (1961) reproduces the work in drawing and offers readers an unknown version of the poems.

We deepen into Joana Raspall's collection of poems, where her daughter Imma Cauhé will focus on the link between text and drawing, used techniques and the different interpretations. On the other hand, Conxi Rosique will approach the creation and production process of images that illustrate haikus and finally the explanation on the content of the book and the literary form that Raspall used will be analysed by the poet Miquel Desclot.
