La Pareja / The Couple

Married for 17 years, Janette and Noberto have completed their first collaboration together- La Pareja.

La Pareja opens as a concertina with five collaborative etchings popping off the page using humor and irony to bring to light the diverse themes common to anyone in a relationship including: communication, tolerance, and passion.

Hidden behind the etchings are small chine collé woodcuts creating representations of the five themes.

Noberto did confide in me that making this book was a difficult process.
