O Primeiro Livro (Portuguese edition)
49,50 € inc. VAT
The Very First Book tells the legend of the birth of the first book ever. It was entirely handmade at Qual Albatroz's workshop: the content creation, the silkscreen printing, the binding. We used 100% cotton paper produced by the Portuguese firm Moinho, using traditional and environmental sustainable processes.
2nd edition | Portuguese language version
O Primeiro Livro is not only a handmade book. It’s a tribute to books and the ancient art of bookmaking and it tells us about the mythical birth of the first book ever. We believe that drawing attention to the legendary essence of a book is the best way to pay it homage, because, ultimately, all books are legends. Their purpose is to create worlds, realities, lives that are beyond truths and lies and simply depend on the reader engaging with the stories they tell. O Primeiro Livro, 2nd edition, has a limited print run of 60 copies.
