Umberto Eco inspired photoshoot

The Mysterious Flame of Queen Loana is an Italian novel by Umberto Eco and translated by Geoffrey Brock.  It is a rich, wonderful, descriptive romp through antique and vintage Italian culture as Yambo, the 59-yr-old protagonist, works to recover his memory after a stroke by returning to his hometown of Solara and exploring his old newspapers, vinyl records, books, magazines and childhood comic books.  The crux of the plot is the one memory Yambo wishes to see most: the face of the girl he loved as a student and ever after.

One of the illustrations in the book as Yambo seeks this memory was my main inspiration for this shot
