Sol Rébora: "Over several years in which I had the opportunity to travel to different cities in the world with the specific purpose of learning specific design techniques binding, I was keeping the tickets — train, bus, and all means of transport used — not only because I was interested aesthetically but because they had a special memory in each of them and I kept thinking of doing a book that would contain them.

"Years later came the opportunity, time, and desire. Imagine the world, white, prefect, always better than my own city.

"Discover it, live it, soak up other colors, shapes, flavors, all is not as white as I imagined, but has gray, midpoints, shades, black."
