5Invasive Species in Italy

Research and editorial design. Group effort with Tobia Faiman, Patrick Zavadskis and Laura Larrive. Under supervision of Joost Grootens. ISIA U, November 2019

Invasive species in Italy works as a compilation of animal and plant species introduced to Italy from external sources, now threatening to harm their new environment.

Each Group was tasked with researching and designing their respective section of the book, resulting in multiple chapters with differing visual and hierarchical presentations.

Book dimensions of 105 x 185 mm.
