Limerick

A limerick is a form of poetry with a strict rhyme scheme, which is sometimes obscene with humorous intent. The oldest attested text in this form is a Latin prayer by Thomas Aquinas of the 13th century. The form appeared in England in the early years of the 18th century and was popularized by Edward Lear in the 19th century.
The task was to create a small booklet with three limericks and, for each one of them, a black and white illustration.
The project was a part of a studio did during the Final Syntesis Lab at Politecnico di Milano.
