Periferia - Andrés Sandoval
A wordless book 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
depicts particular objects from this vast, complex, wonderful and
sometimes 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.
