INTRODUCING THE NEW QUOTES SERIES
QUOTES is a new collection of authors from all times and all countries, examined not in their monumental works, not in their essays of vast scope, but in writings that belong to no less illustrious and far from minor genres: the short article and the interview. The setup of the series is intentionally anachronistic, somewhat in controversy with a mannered pseudo-avant-garde approach we see with increasing frequency as it floats on the surface of the web and on the glossy pages of fashionable magazines; it is a selection of fundamentally anti-modern texts. You can use them as antidotes to the most common ailments of modernity: the transient, the fleeting, the contingent. A palliative care based on the permanent, to be taken in small doses. The translations are new and original. The books in the series are published in limited editions of 200 copies each.
ABOUT THE NEW DIVISARE BOOKS
The new divisare books are small format pocket-book size, in limited editions of 200 copies, high-resolution digital printed, bound, with a hardcover, finished in fine English paper. Titles on the cover are silver foil hot stamped. We attach great importance to the tactile quality of the book as an object as well as, of course, its contents. Unlike the web that runs fast and vanishes faster, leaving no trace, Our books have the aim of lasting in time. The idea is simple: printed paper instead of pixels; we just want to invite you to get away from the screens of your devices for a moment, to sit back in a favorite armchair and enjoy a good read, in the old fashioned way.

Divisare is the result of an effort of selection and classification of contemporary architecture conducted for over twenty years. Patient work, done with care, image after image, project after project, to offer you the ideal tool with which to organize your knowledge of contemporary architecture. Instead of a quick, distracted web, we want a slow, attentive one. Instead of hastily perused information, we prefer knowledge calmly absorbed. This is why Divisare is a place to perceive architecture slowly, without distractions. No click — like — tweet — share, no advertising, banners, pop-ups. Just architecture, no more and no less.
