  • Nobrow Leporello - a series of illustrated books, aimed to push the boundaries of print and illustration. Some are educational, all are beautiful. Leporello is an Italian word that is used across Europe to describe a ‘concertina’ book.

    Originating from Mozart’s Don Giovanni opera, Leporello was the name of Giovanni’s servant. In a particularly comic scene Leporello explains to one of Giovanni’s jilted lovers that he isn’t worth her time by revealing a list of his conquests which include 640 in Italy, 231 in Germany, 100 in France, 91 in Turkey and in Spain, 1003! “Madamina, il catalogo è questo” “Little lady, this is the catalogue!” he exclaims as the little booklet unfolds and keeps unravelling until it gathers in a huge pile on the ground. Thus the word ‘Leporello’ was born! Beyond the Surface takes the reader on a journey from the centre of the earth to it s highest peaks, applauding the achievements of brave men and women who have pushed the very limits of human endurance throughout the centuries. From Empedocles to Hillary; from the cave paintings of Lascaux to the human fish of Ljubljana; learn what lies beyond the surface in this beautiful concertina book.
