SENZAPAROLE (WORDLESS) 
By Roger Olmos
Logos edizioni / http://faada.org/
Music by MOBY, Hope is gone.
The book: http://www.libri.it/senza-parole-roge…

A book for the friends of animals, with no age limits.

“All over the world there is a mounting sense of unease about the way in which we human beings have been mistreating and exploiting other living beings. In the most admirable way, Wordless encourages us to look at our fellow creatures with new eyes.” — J.M. Coetzee, Nobel Prize in Literature 2003

Logos edizioni, in collaboration with FAADA (Foundation for the Adoption, Sponsorship and Defense of Animals ) and Roger Olmos, have given birth to a book that through its images and only few words aims at sensitizing the human beings of all ages to the conditions of the other animals, their fellow creatures: in order to know them instead of exploiting them, to love them instead of abandoning them, to protect them instead of massacring them.

A book that leads us to think about our choices, sometimes simply dictated by the “ignorance” of what lies behind fashion, food, and entertainment…

“In an increasingly urbanized world, more and more alienated from nature, it is no surprise that we also distance ourselves from animals. From “other” animals. “Other” because — although we happen to do it quite often — we shouldn’t forget that we are animals too. Maybe intentionally or perhaps because that’s the way it was, animals have been historically presented to us as food, clothes, objects of experimentation, and even sources of entertainment. Do we really see all that’s behind the uses of these animals or do we just see what is shown to us? Do we really want to see it? Do we want to be consistent with the consequences of our actions? SENZAPAROLE (WORDLESS) invites you to embrace a wider perspective, to look and think beyond the bounds that have been marked for us, outside the world in which we feel comfortable. We invite you to widen the focus, to adopt a more global view of what surrounds and amuses us, of what we use and what we eat. Do we really have the right to do whatever we want to the other animals with which we share the Planet?” –J. Berengueras, FAADA

Roger Olmos : “When I was a child I was fascinated by the illustrated books my father used to keep in his studio, which I found more interesting than the ones he use to buy for me. Those pictures are engraved in my mind and always will be, in such a strong way that the personal imaginary I have been developing since then has always been shrouded in those unusual atmospheres. This is also what I’m trying to do with my works: to recreate those early stimuli that trained me ‘imagemotionally’ also on the other things.”
Roger Olmos Pastor was born in Barcelona on the 23rd December 1975. He attended the Llotja Avinyó School of Arts and Crafts, where he specialized in illustration.
In the years 1999, 2002, and 2005 he was selected for the Illustrator’s Exhibition at the Bologna Children’s Book Fair.
