Hope is a strange invention –
A Patent of the Heart –
In unremitting action
Yet never wearing out –

Of this electric Adjunct
Not anything is known
But its unique momentum
Embellish all we own –

[Emily Dickinson, 1392, trad. Nuno Júdice, in Emily Dickinson, Poemas e Cartas, Livros Cotovia, 2000, pp. 122-3]

The text in black sober typography contrasts with the pure white paper, like written in a book. The red for passion. One symbol of union, the plus. An origami that is a bookmark. An invitation to keep and use.
