The Project

The publishing group Poligrafici launches a collection of books on the well-known detective with refined ways and ingenious acumen, with the aim of bringing to the attention of the new generations an immortal classic.

The six covers were asked to express the class of Maigret without getting lost in affectation out of place nowadays.

The result is a set that unfolds the character, winking at the young design of the 2000s without losing sight of the traditional Simenon reader.
