Twenty-four vintage book covers from Portugal
posted by kenko (11 comments total) 15 users marked this as a favorite

 
Portuguese design is often amazing, and the graphic arts is top-notch. Here's a recent MOMA wrap. This is my favorite of this collection, a notebook made out of the thin paper used at traditional Portuguese "tascas".

this is bait, right, to see if Migs will come back and say he had the Gide on his book shelf and gregory corso rolled a blunt on it, gave it to a Bulgarian journalist who...

'Hh, you say how, Ja Acusse! Noaw, Poirot does not pull the wool most compfy noaw...it was the small refer-eance to Guerra Junqueiro on the Phampheltos Revolucionarios, Poirot knew only to find the pole.'

i like the Miguel Flávio cover.

This makes me wish our old friend Miguel Cardoso were still active around here.

Can someone contextualize this a little? I didn't really know Portuguese culture had a "paper fetish".

A gem, especially the Calvino covers at the start. Lots of other good stuff on the blog too. Thanks!
