Leporello book, pearled softcover, 480 numbered copies.

The "Ouroboros" is an important symbol to Marco and his work. It relates to evolution. To being reborn. The influence of his parents on his life and how it reflects back to the way he views his parents. To Marzocchi, everything is connected.

The symbol guided many of the design concepts presented in ‘Oyster’. every book connects to each other. There are 480 different covers. Every snake is a cover of a book and the back cover of the next. Turning the 480 books into a singular piece.

‘Oyster’ is a 84 page Leporello book. This form allows the reader to have a free and non linear read of the publication. It allows a circular reading. Again, an Ouroboros.

“This work represents my experience in recovering and understanding my parents, their life and their relationship with me. I never knew them well because they split when I was 6 years old, and they both died young. Drugs, addictions, jail and dysfunctional environment, these were constant elements. This work is focused on dealing with and replacing all the doubts and fears that I had. Exorcising the pain and searching for love.” (Marco Marzocchi)
