Noé Jitrik One of Argentina’s foremost literary critics, his writings are peaceful, shy, and ironic, while they also catch the eye of the reader.
Luis Felipe Noé One of Argentina’s greatest 20th-Century visual artists, his paintings are violent, overwhelming, caustic, while they overflow their canvass and disturb the eye of the beholder.

The texts and illustrations comprised in this book are the result of a friendly, random fact: Noé Jitrik and Luis Felipe Noé share three letters, which at the same time joins them and makes them different (as in the former they make up a first name, and in the latter, a last name). When they realized that fact, it led them to a new venture: Noé Jitrik would write something inspired in that name, while Luis Felipe Noé would in turn paint a series inspired by those writings. The result was an exhibition, which later turned into a book gathering their imaginations, a book that can be read and observed, a book that expresses both the original idea and the authors’ creative, delirious freedom.
