A wordless story made from tiny stamps, Periferia, which means
‘Periphery’ in Portuguese, is a São Paulo-inspired concertina picture
book by Brazilian graphic artist Andrés Sandoval. Each stamp
represents a particular object from the vast, complex, wonderful and
ometimes scary city.
The drawing, which can be read as a book or displayed open on a shelf,
includes a key to the individual icons, and an introductory text
(in English and Portuguese). Tower Block Books collaborated with graphic
design studio A Practice for Everyday Life, who created a custom typeface,
also stamped, for the cover.
A first edition of only 300 copies will be printed in London, UK.
We’re super excited to publish this amazing work and can’t wait
to share it with you.
