We cannot deny that we are not attracted to the ugly because it is always in our conversation, and it seems to have become the leitmotiv of this column. We appreciate it because it shows us an unusual side of reality and for this reason we think it is right to celebrate it in all its forms.
Today it is the turn of libri.brutti, an unusual Instagram profile that practices the ugly and glorifies it without shame.
This profile contains a collection of almost 150 books, a messy and chaotic archive of the ugliest Italian publications of the last century, a grotesque catalogue of the national publishing market.
If you think you will find hatred, contempt and disgust, however, you are mistaken. libri.brutti is not a den of judgments without hesitation, but a place where people can meet to exhibit and share their collective lack of grace, harmony and good taste.
“101 scuse per non fare l’amore”, “Sculture di pane”, “+ alberi – terroni”.
We have always been taught not to judge a book by its cover – or at least by its title – but in this case we would like to contradict ourselves, perhaps it is not necessary to delve into the content to change our minds
We have selected the ugliest books for you here, but to discover the whole archive visit the official profile on Instagram.
