O Perfume do Boi (*signed*)

@ Príncipe, André



O Perfume do Boi, dont le titre peut se traduire par "Le parfum du taureau", est le troisième d'une trilogie (après Thought You Knew Where All Of The Elephants Lie Down et Master and Everyone) dont les 3 titres sont aujourd'hui épuisés chez l'éditeur.

Cette série est la chronique d'un voyage le long des frontières du Portugal; au gré de la route, des villages et des rencontres, l'auteur nous propose un récit très étrange peuplé de personnages, d'endroits et de situation qui posent question.

Comme l'indique l'éditeur dans la présentation en anglais du livre (cf. Détails) : "La sensation d'une narration très présente n'a d'égale que le doute quant à l'existence de la moindre histoire."


48 pages - Couverture souple, agrafé

Pierre von Kleist, 2012 (500 ex.)


Neuf - Coin inférieur droit légèrement corné (couverture et pages), parfait état par ailleurs.

From the editor

"O Perfume do Boi (translated: "the perfume of the bull") was shot during a three-month anticlockwise journey around Portugal's borders.

Outside cities, out in the fields and in the woods, in small town circuses, with the lunatics and the acrobats. The very strong narrative feeling comes with an equally strong suspicion that there might be no story. The photos of the animals and people combined with the natural elements, cause a sense of eminent danger and trouble. There is an aura of prophecy and myth, and in the end we are left with the echo of a cry in the night."

"The Japanese five elements are, in ascending order of power - Earth, Water, Fire, Wind, and Void", says the author."

The first two books of this series are sold out: I Thought You Knew Where All Of The Elephants Lie Down and Master and Everyone. This triology of titles were designed like classical music scores.
