Automobili Lamborghini and Moleskine, an Italian manufacturer, papermaker and product designer, have selected Emiliano Ponzi, a prolific Milan-based editorial illustrator, to create a cover illustration and interior design for the 2021 notebook.
The style of Emiliano Ponzi, one of the finest illustrators of his generation, is easily recognized in his bold, textured artwork that uses repetition, judicious use of line, strong graphic compositions, and the use of conceptual metaphors. His illustrations are featured in distinguished publications, books, newspapers and world-renowned advertisements for clients such as The New York Times, Le Monde, The New Yorker, Louis Vuitton, MoMA NY, Cartier and Der Spiegel.
The collaboration between Automobili Lamborghini and Moleskine began from a careful evaluation of the graphic approach, staying consistent with the brands’ values both in terms of the evocative design projects and prestige at the international level. Emiliano Ponzi’s graphic style perfectly reflects these characteristics.
The artwork tells us about a journey with a Lamborghini Huracán EVO that starts in an urban context, drifts through a naturalistic setting, and finishes at sunset with an illustration that can be seen on the cover.
The Moleskine notebook for Automobili Lamborghini, Special Edition 2021, will be available from June at Lamborghini dealers, the boutique in Sant’Agata Bolognese, and the e-commerce channel Lamborghinistore.com
