I am no longer the only design writer published by Orfeu Negro. Here, and only here, I came before Daciano Da Costa.
I resisted the old Daciano da Costa books because I didn’t appreciate their design. It wasn’t just the fonts and composition that I disliked but the design of the object itself. So often, we forget that part of design that involves arranging matter in a way that makes it a pleasure to use.
Daciano’s books finally have a good design (from @gabinete.paratextual)
Another detail: I never realized that Daciano spoke at some point of Mr. Gaudencio. Since I read it for the first time I married, I took my wife’s last name. I am now Mr. Gaudencio.
