Libri Finti Clandestini is a collective formed by the artists El Pacino (Milan, 1988-), Aniv Delarev (Pueblo Nuevo Solistahuacán, 1980-) and Yghor Kowalvsky (Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, 1985-).
This project was created in the field of recycling and degrowth.
The aim of the collective is to make real books (sketchbooks, notebooks, travel diaries, object books) using only recovered paper: printer’s waste, printing proofs and starter paper, shopping bags, posters, envelopes, bread bags and even wallpaper.
They use a multitude of types of paper which, coming from printing workshops, festivals, private houses, abandoned factories, universities and libraries, allows a great deal of experimentation.
A great quality of the project is the fact that the production of these objects is totally sustainable and with zero environmental impact.
