Why I’m Still A Communist – Pedro Pousada€39.00
Anger, ruin, and disharmony can also become gritty combustion. These drawings discuss the human subject, not its abstraction, not its statistical profile, not its standardization, but the dirty and stubborn creature made of biology and culture, the Adamic creature lost in his pioneering disillusion that the wild or the technological world will save it from redundancy and finitude.
Don’t Make Me Spell It Out – Cecília Corujo€36.00
“Don’t Make Me Spell it Out” by Cecília Corujo presents itself as a logbook, a record of a journey through the process of growing a character. Throughout a set of drawings, collages, questions, or lyrics, all done during a 1 year period, the book explores the blurring of a position, the emotional ambivalence that characterizes the end of youth and entering adulthood - a discussion between expectations and disappointments.
CONTEMPORARY LANDSCAPES – GERMES GANG€18.00
Lisbon-based illustration quartet Germes Gang, who work with both traditional forms of illustration and street art, have released a new book visualising their very favourite things. Contemporary Landscapes brings points of obsession for the gang — including “iconic cartoons. TV shows, brands, sports, and the low life” – into being. For the illustration gang’s four members, collaboration is thought of as “graffiti and art interventions which are politically and socially charged,” they tell It’s Nice That. Consequently, they see their practice as one “embedded in sarcasm,” and “perceive everything related to contemporary life traumatic.” — It's Nice That

MIGUEL PALMA A-Z€20.00
Texts by: Pedro Gadanho, Luísa Santos and Adelaide Ginga Photography: Luís Silva Campos Miguel Palma. A-Z is a drawing-installation made up of around three hundred works on paper by Miguel Palma. This exhibition, the second held in MAAT’s Project Room, is presented as a random encyclopaedia of the artist’s drawing works. Including only a quarter of the total number of drawings he has created over three decades, the selection presented here consists of original drawings grouped by affinities at times formal (size, colour, technique), at other times conceptual (series, subjects). The exhibition catalogue records not only the project’s making of, but also the process of setting up the exhibition and images of the finished display. An essay by Luísa Santos and an interview with the artist by Adelaide Ginga, both curators of this exhibition, complement the content gathered in this book. — Maat The machine. The motor, the cables, the construction. Turning the visible into invisible. Approximately 300 works on paper that establish what MAAT designates as drawing-installation and that come together under the banner of Miguel Palma’s anthology, based on his less known work. This way we can get to know the artistic methodology of Miguel Palma a little bit better and the way he reaches sculpture and installation. It is the first exclusive exhibition of his work on paper, whose works comprise approximately one-fourth of the existing total, according to the curator Adelaide Ginga. The present works, even though they serve mostly as support or an auxiliary of Palma’s sculptural works, have not, however, a sketch-like character, but give shape to an artistic parallel path. With that, we can perceive the artist’s joy when it comes to drawing and working on paper, because that takes him to the finished work, eventually ready to be exhibited. Palma declares “I feel an immense freedom with drawing” and considers that collage (which is repeated often in this anthological) has a very close relationship with sculpture. — Umbigo Magazine
THE SPIRITUAL ASCENSION OF ALL THE ANIMALS – Mantraste€15.00
From the walls to the pages of a fanzine. The Spiritual Ascension Of All The Animals is a kind of Mantraste redux or, doing more justice to the work, a portable and intimate version. It is a piece that marks a transitional phase in the career of this illustrator, the first pages of a new chapter. — Shifter
CABRITA REIS @P28/P31€30.00
This book brings together five collaborative moments between Pedro Cabrita Reis and both P28 and P31 associations. These associations explore the relationship between the city, “non-places” and culture by taking action on social responsibility, working with artists/patients of the plastic arts studio of the rehabilitation service of the Psychiatric Hospital Center in Lisbon. “The Others” is the first collaboration documented here and is a project based on the exchange of roles between Pedro Cabrita Reis and the artists/patients. In this creative process, Pedro Cabrita Reis plays the role of a matrix - the model reproduced by artists/patients together with a sculptural intervention by Pedro Cabrita Reis.
YOU COULD FEEL THE PLASTIC – Ricardo Passaporte€15.00
Ricardo Passaporte's body of work is deeply engaged with the history of Pop, underscoring the evolving relationship between art and commerce as well as articulating the parallels between graffiti’s custom of tagging and the same repetitive, identity-driven practice of the corporate logo. By appropriating these logos as his artistic tag, Passaporte disrupts the relationship between brand and consumer.
HORTUS – Maria Condado€28.00
This book is a graphic voyage through the history of gardens. As in a card deck, everything is shuffled and dealt again. A portable landscape in book format.

YOUNG PEOPLE THINKING ABOUT EACH OTHER – António Olaio€38.00
Face drawings done in live drawing sessions and that more than one approach to the portrait, depart from physionomy to pure plasticity of formal games. These heads (thinking about each other) are here accompanied by plant drawings that abstract and reinvent an imaginary botany. Abstract plants as thought? Here, opening the possibility of a connection between the mind and the traditional ornamental vocation of plants, perhaps it is above all to emphasize the very plasticity of thought. João Silverio writes regarding the purpose of Olaio’s work, they «... are always works whose contents are in transit, and so continue. In addition to conducting these formal games, being “in transit” can be a way to synthesize the very work of this artist in the way it faces the nomadic nature of conceptual games.»
VISUAL MANIFESTO – Alice Geirinhas€30.00
Alice’s second book is a manifesto in the form of an artist’s book which, in the words of the artist, imprints “memories and transgressions explained in patterns”.
O COLAPSO DA CIVILIZAÇÃO – João Fonte Santa€48.00
This book is a visual potpourri of a society that was thought invulnerable and believed eternity was about that brief moment of zero gravity when the world is perfect!
THE CABINET OF DR ALICE – Alice Geirinhas€38.00
This is a kind of image repository that ultimately builds (or rebuilds) a fictional biography of the artist. Not so much a collection of Geirinhas’ images, but a kind of return to her personal memory. We find here the artist’s drawings, some of which are from that recognizable series, produced in scratchboard, but others made with ballpoint or cheap markers, perhaps more remote chronologically speaking, or the result of relaxation exercises, scribbles to support the thought. But we also find images “found” or “appropriated”, in the form of photocopies, scans, pictures of all kinds of graphic qualities: children’s books, paper dolls to dress, multiplication tables of illustrations and traditional tales, recipes book guards, book covers, advertising sheets, an excerpt of a text in Spanish conservative tinge to the woman, and the everlasting Crónica Feminina.
GREY MATTER – Miguel Palma
It all started during the summer. With plenty of sun and heat Miguel Palma missed the winter and decided to think of gray. “There is a kind of nostalgia,” he said. However it is very difficult to paint in gray and so he got some pantones that he brought from the United States, with colors used in construction in Arizona, where he was in residence for a year. From the pantones he did an exercise that falls within the Abstract Expressionism and dripping, and from there he began telling stories. “I’ve cut out pictures and phrases from books and magazines. Each drawing refers to a day thinking about a certain subject,” he says. These were painted daily for 2 months, resulting in 46 drawings.
