Carlo Rossi commissioned me to make a poster for his musical based on the novel Princess of Babylon by Voltaire.
The novel: https://www.gutenberg.org/files/35595/35595-h/35595-h.htm#Ia
Taking inspiration from posters for Puccini’s operas like Turandot, Madame Butterfly and Tosca, the composition will be centered on the figure of Babylonian princess Formasante.
The poster has to be in Dutch, English and Italian. Most likely the printing technique will be a 2-3 color silkscreen on archival A1 (50×70) paper.
