illywords is an editorial project on art and culture, and a blog.
Launched in 2002 as a magazine, illywords features dialogues, opinions and multiple viewpoints on the issues closest to the heart of responsible, curious, active members of modern society such as illy. In 2014 illy•words was reborn. Still true to its original topics, it was reconceived as a bookzine -a cross between a book and a magazine- and made its debut in international book stores.
In 2016 the stories of illywords add up to the project - tiny books where beautiful images accompany with stories to be read over the time of a coffee break. This new chapter of the illywords project celebrates the sociability and creativity that are peculiar of the coffee ritual that ratifies meetings, gives moments of pause and reflection, stimulates the senses and the intellect.
Inside illywords, (both its digital and paper edition) art, food, design, photography and illustration coexist seamlessly, interweaving different disciplines and diverse outlooks, in particular on the illywords blog where the content is broad, varied and cosmopolitan, thanks to a group of international contributors.
illywords is a flexible editorial product that brings together visions and opinions from people of different cultures, occupations and countries, each with their own language. illywords is always looking to promote up and coming creative and artistic talents, and each edition features a special focus on an emerging illustrator or young artist.
illywords is available in the best book stores and museums worldwide, and also online.
