The Body in Space: The Lives of Pedro Cervantes (Large Print)
The Body in Space The Lives of Pedro Cervantes - Large Print Author:Vicente Quirarte We occupy a place in space and a portion is also granted to us in time.

Ever since he has had the power of reason, Pedro Cervantes knew that it is necessary to make each second of our personal clock unique, to kindle it and to deserve it. The title and subtitle of this book allu... more »de to this double condition of the man and the artist: Born one, Cervantes has been several. In all the facets of his complex and fascinating geometry, he has remained faithful to one principle: beauty is our only refuge. He has devoted his existence to seeking it, worshiping it, and perpetuating it.
This is a story of his lives and a synthesis of his devotion to the material in which he has managed to perpetuate our highest dreams. Therefore, Vicente Quirarte dedicated himself to translating into his own words those of Cervantes, by listening to him and interpreting him and offering his own testimony of objective bedazzlement. Francisco Kochen photographed, with his educated, refined, and obsessive lens, the maestro's pieces and his world. Ricardo Salas brought together letters and images in his unrivaled style that has led him to design some of Mexico's most representative volumes. Diego Garcia Elio was in charge of coordinating and maintaining harmony among the parts, with the experience, tidiness, and good taste that characterize his editions. The result stands before the reader's eyes.« less
