Rafael Pombo Poetry

Maguma illustrates Rafael Pombo's poems in this beautiful book.

This stunning book has recently been published and features Maguma's perfectly crafted conceptual illustrations. Published by Editorial Amanuta the book contains poems by Rafael Pombo (Colombia, 1833-1912) who is one of the greatest Latin American poets. ‘The poor old woman’ is one of his best known poems. With humor and irony it shows a piece of the human soul, contrasting the wealth and material wealth of the old woman with her spiritual and moral poverty. Maguma's illustrations throughout the book, display a game of symmetry 'which highlight the inconsistency and greed.'
