LRNZ’s VIEWPOINT was originally printed as a set of extremely limited sketchbooks available only in Italy. We are now looking to produce a brand new, 120+ page softcover collection of the most inspiring pieces from that library, combined with new and never before seen pieces produced in the years since. This oversized, 9×12″ gallery-quality art book will be printed on heavy woodfree paper with a thick, un-coated card stock cover emblazoned with glossy foil-stamped elements.

LRNZ is the penname of artist and designer Lorenzo Ceccotti, who has made waves throughout many different fields of visual art around the world, from film and animation to music videos and video games. He has most recently become best-known in the US for his breathtaking first full-length graphic novel, GOLEM, a tale filled with adventure, intrigue, political commentary, and spiritual metaphor.
His work sets him apart within a peer group of masters such as Terada, Moebius, Otomo, Bilal, Darrow, Madureira, Steranko, Sienkiewicz, and Stout. And now we’re setting out to produce and publish a new edition of his out-of-print VIEWPOINT art book series.
Set in a future, post-Eurozone Italy, entrenched in a culture of hyper-capitalism, GOLEM follows young Steno Critone as he is kidnapped during a political protest gone sour. Taken in by the band of labeled “terrorists,” he learns that things are not as they seem in society, and that he has the power to not only change the city, but reality itself.
This intensely imaginative political-sci-fi graphic novel is a visual tour de force, created by contemporary design icon Lorenzo Ceccotti, better known as LRNZ, whose design-influenced illustration provides a lush, fluid backdrop of manga-like dynamism with the cinematic scope of western comics, creating a style that is wholly unique and absolutely breathtaking.
