Joyeux Anniversaire Maurice Polydore Marie Bernard Maeterlinck!           (29 August 1862 – 6 May 1949) 

Belgian playwright, poet, and essayist who was a Fleming, but wrote in French. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1911 “in appreciation of his many-sided literary activities, and especially of his dramatic works, which are distinguished by a wealth of imagination and by a poetic fancy, which reveals, sometimes in the guise of a fairy tale, a deep inspiration, while in a mysterious way they appeal to the readers’ own feelings and stimulate their imaginations”. The main themes in his work are death and the meaning of life. His plays form an important part of the Symbolist movement. (Wikipedia)

Once said Pablo Picasso and Mirko Camia, digital artist and typographer from Milan, italy knows how to do it. The fundamental point in his illustrations and typography, which is always used with the greatest detail possible, launching increasingly strong and direct messages.
