Can a picture give new life to a text? What can be illustrated? We have taken up this challenge by illustrating a rule book. A text which is usually considered only for its usefulness, purposely aseptic, not literary, can be seen as pleasing, gently ironic, even artistic if illustrated. We have chosen to present the rules of the most popular sport in our nation also because we wanted to try and see soccer in a more reasonable, enjoyable and relaxed fashion; we have tried to stress the idea that, like it happens in every game, also those who love soccer so much should read, know and share its rules more friendly. A graphic in a limited edition of 100 copies accompanies the book.
