Hello,

how do you suggest representing a person that has two roles in a 
creative work with Bibframe RDF. Assuming that the agent in [1], Example 
3 is illustrator as well as author of the example resource, there are 
two options.

1. Listing roles within a contribution:

<http://bibframe.example.org/resource> bf:contribution [
     a bf:Contribution ;
     bf:role "illustrator", "author" ;
     bf:agent <http://id.loc.gov/rwo/agents/n94064763> ] .

2. Listing contributions:

<http://bibframe.example.org/resource> bf:contribution [
     a bf:Contribution ;
     bf:role "illustrator" ;
     bf:agent <http://id.loc.gov/rwo/agents/n94064763> ], [
     a bf:Contribution ;
     bf:role "author" ;
     bf:agent <http://id.loc.gov/rwo/agents/n94064763> ] .


I guess both versions make sense, depending on how you interpret a 
"Contribution": Are they rather person-centrix (which would mean using 
1.) or role-centric (which would mean 2.)?

I would be happy if the Bibframe documentation provided a clear answer 
to this question.

All the best
Adrian
