K. Revue newsletter design

K. Revue trans-européenne de philosophie et arts  is a biannual electronic publication and  it is the result of collaboration between the CECILLE Laboratory of the University of Lille SHS and the Philosophy Department of the University of Messina. Each issue is monographic and it focuses on a figure, a name or a historical figure who is related to the idea of destituent power. The dossiers are chosen and voted on by the editorial board at annual meetings. All articles (Eessays and readings) selected by the Editorial Board are subject to a double-blind evaluation (anonymity of author and evaluator) by readers outside the journal.K. may also randomly produce special issues, usually – but not always – linked to current events. These special issues are the fruit of the independent work of members of the editorial team. K. is also a collection published by Mimesis entitled Samsa. Écritures pour le destituant.

Each K. Revue issue is announced by an electronic newsletter that I design accordingly to a picture that relates to an article of the issue. Since K. is a philosophy journal but also an art review, there’s always at least an essay on films and cinema, therefore the main image can often be a film poster. The publication of the issue on theTramp,Tramp deserter, Tramp revolutionary, Tramp dancer, was announced with a famous picture of Charlot,  while the latest issue, the first in 2024, dedicated to Jean of Arc, has been announce with the poster of 1957 film Saint Joan directed by Otto Priminger. Theatrical release poster has been designed by Saul Bass, who is a master of design and whose career show how much communication design can is a engine of artwork.
