María Eugenia Alonso is 18 years old when she loses her father and must leave Europe to return to her native country, Venezuela. The impact of the exchange of Paris in the midst of cultural effervescence of the 1920s by the monotonous and conservative Caracas inspires her to write her impressions in a diary. This is the motto of Ifigênia, the diary of a young woman who wrote because she was bored, from the Venezuelan Teresa de la Parra (1889–1936).
The typography, Bifur, from Cassandre, refers directly to the time and place that the novel was written. The pieces of the letters, on the cover, was a graphic metaphor of deconstruction of the female protagonist expected resignation at that time. The book jacket was conceived as a wrapping paper envelope that holds her diary (the book). The colors were borrowed from the Brazilian graphic artist of the same period, J. Carlos.
