“All through school and university I had been given maps of life and knowledge on which there was hardly a trace of many of the things that I most cared about and that seemed to me to be of the greatest possible importance for the conduct of my life. I remembered that for many years my perplexity was complete; and no interpreter came along to help me. It remained complete until I ceased to suspect the sanity of my perceptions and began, instead, to suspect the soundness of the maps.”
(from A Guide for the Perplexed, by E. F. Schumacher)
Made in conjunction with a homonymous exhibition at Dama Aflita, Porto, Portugal.
- I Want to Escape But Not to Disappear, a minicomic collaboration between Ed Cheverton and João Sobral – beautiful, simple linework, adorable and delightful. For the simplicity of some of the panels in this, the imagery and feeling is astounding.
