Logo Depois da Virgula, Book Design

António Silveira Gomes

"Right after the Comma" starts where Mount Analogue ends, an incomplete masterpiece about an epic non-voyage to a mythical island, written by French philosopher Rene Daumal. This author tragically died, leaving the original script in mid-chapter, ending in a mysterious comma. A narrative, probing travel book, laden with drawings, bibliographical references, captions, comments and various forms of footnotes that required a very specific vis-à-vis approach to the conventional text/image dualism.
