Del Cuerpo A Las Raices

I illustrated the jacket and full-page plants for this wonderful book which passes down indigenous herbalists’ knowledge on women’s health. I worked with guidance from a collective of herbalists from Valparaíso, Chile who advised on how to accurately depict these powerful plants in a way that would be not just practical but also beautiful. I also worked together with a graphic designer on blending text and image for the front and back covers as well as the spine. For the cover, I created about 20 rough sketches to explore possible creative directions for together with the book’s editor. The selected cover design is inspired by old-fashioned botanical posters. I was happy to be part of a project that centers indigenous voices and wisdom. The book is available for purchase here.
