As part of their mission, Convivium Press books support the religious formation of Hispanic/Latino communities in the U.S. through the establishment of joint editorial projects.
DESIGN & AESTHETICS
A Proposal with Character and Design
In offering high quality Books, venezuelan Graphic Designer Eduardo Chumaceiro d’E. has shared his many years of work and experience in graphic designing, and has captured the sense and meaning of our editorial Proposal.
Our Covers have the seal of Convivium Press` sensibility towards an Aesthetics of Beauty. Fecundity, Awareness and Hope are thought and expressed in this fine selection of sample images as an invitation to provoke an encounter between readers and author.
Using Space and Proportions
Use of Space and Proportions, together with elegant Forms and Arabesques, are part of the design of our interior Pages, making them unique and classic and, at the same time, modern and provocative.
