Embroidering Porto

This book reveals my personal experience of the inspiring city of Porto, in Portugal. Its streets full of colourful tiles, patterns, illustrations and vernacular type —among others—, led me to the most amazing ceramics workshop —and tutor Pedro Gil—, who taught me very briefly about this beautiful and traditional Portuguese craft. I ended up combining it with experimental typography and embroidery (which is another important craft in Portugal and a latent obsession in my work). The result is a compilation of pictures of that process, related to two short texts and to the embroidered tile exposed on the cover.
