Further news is that Sara Elena Rossetti is currently working on a new small book in collaboration with Costanza Agnese, illustrator, and Roberto Bernasconi, architect, to be published by Edizioni Pulcinoelefante. Edizioni Pulcinoelefante was founded by Alberto Casiraghy in 1982 and has published more than 9,000 titles including works by Italian and foreign poets and artists. These books are printed using a movable type printing press and in runs of around 20 or 30 copies. Each book includes an aphorism or a short poem by a poet and an illustration, photograph or work by an artist.
