Project based on the private library acquired by l. dos santos during the 1960s and ‘70s. The library reflects his professional interests, including architecture, urban planning and education, as well as the influence of historical events that marked those two decades: the anti-fascist movement, may 68, students’ riots, the portuguese carnations revolution and the PREC – the revolutionary period after april the 25th. Researching this library forty years later, a selection of images and texts in the books, magazines, leaflets was reworked through editing, drawing, sampling and experimental writing. We created a fragmented intertextual narrative, which takes a subjective look at the public documents in a private archive.
The handmade edition, produced in lisbon in august 2010, is size A4, 29,7x21 cm, and was printed in an epson stylus sx105, using varied papers (including vegetable parchment, greaseproof paper, tracing paper , maps and file separators) found in the same library.
This print on demand edition is size standard portrait, 25x20 cm, and is printed on premium (matte finish) paper by blurb.com
