I’m not sure what this Portugese picture book is about but the illustrations are totally awesome. They mix collage and drawing and texture in a way I haven’t seen before. The style is nostalgic and vintage feeling but created in a new, fresh and interesting way. The characters have simple faces but their hair is very sculptural. Objects and backgrounds are made of different pieces of papers all with variations of the same tones. The palette is browns ad tans and beiges with bright pops of orange and royal blue. I can stare at these pages all day. Pick up a copy here.
