Kutzooi is a book that I made for a typography assignment, where the content was a collection of existing information about a theme that I find interesting. The book is about menstruation. I wanted to make a book about this theme, because I find it necessary to pay attention to a taboo around a phenomenon that involves at least half of all humans, and which has been here as long as humankind. The book is divided in seven chapters, Because an average period last seven days. Every chapter talks about something different concerning menstruation. There are songs, quotations from the Bible and Quran, reason why women have cravings during their period and how women in challenging situations cope with their period. I hope this book can help with breaking the taboo around menstruation and that people start to talk about it so that it not only has a physical regular appearance but also a verbal one.
