Critical Art Ensemble | Cronicas Brazileiras

Critical Art Ensemble
Cronicas Brazileiras
Tallahassee, USA: Self-published, 1989
[20] pp., 23.5 x 15.5 cm., board covers
Edition of 75

An accordion-fold book, letter-pressed book presenting two simultaneous stories. On one side are the Cronicas Brazileiras, anecdotal tales of Brazilian life, told familiarly in the first and second person as though the reader were fully aware of their cultural and political contexts. On the verso are the Annotations to Cronicas Brazileiras, selected facts from mostly uncited sources. These annotations do not necessarily correlate with the original stories, but rather they tell stories of their own.

Available from Printed Matter, here, for $35.00.
