Product description

Aqui se inicia uma viagem clara para a descoberta de coisas simples, do saber usar, do saber dizer, do comunicar, do jogo subtil da linha no contorno do ornato, do equilíbrio das formas, do peso da letra, do volume da frase ou por vezes no encontro da metáfora. Uma viagem para a descoberta de outras épocas e seus códigos das mensagens e seus suportes, do saber fazer e do prazer em o transmitir. O Porto Gráfico é um somatório de signos, símbolos e significados, imagens populares e imagens eruditas, umas vezes profanas outras sagradas, onde a palavra muitas vezes é dispensada. Aprender a olhar é ofício solitário e artesanal, comunicar, dizer algo é o princípio, tal como o verbo na frase bíblica, dando ao outro a possibilidade de ver (ler) e interpretar. Expor aos passantes o sentido prático do vocabulário, a gramática dos significados, primeiro desenhados em aturado e profundo projecto, depois executados com habilidade e laborioso manuseio. Os códigos de representação requerem imaginação e ousadia, no Porto apesar da diversidade de suportes o privilégio vai para o ferro casado com a pedra , o que dá à cidade uma atmosfera especial. É a «pronúncia do Norte», uma forma peculiar de exprimir, que tem a ver com o carácter dos seus cidadãos.

Here begins a clear journey for the discovery of simple things, of knowing how to use, of knowing to say, of communicating, of the subtle play of the line in the contour of the ornament, the balance of forms, the weight of the letter, the volume of the sentence or times in the encounter of metaphor. A journey to the discovery of other times and their codes of messages and their supporters, of knowing how to do and pleasure in transmitting it. The Porto Graphic is a sum of signs, symbols and meanings, popular images and erudite images, sometimes profane and other sacred, where the word is often dispensed. Learning to look is a solitary craft craft, to communicate, to say something is the beginning, just like the verb in the biblical phrase, giving the other the possibility to see (read) and interpret. To expose to passersby the practical meaning of vocabulary, the grammar of meanings, first designed in an intricate and deep draft, then executed with skill and laborious handling. The codes of representation require imagination and daring, in Porto despite the diversity of supports the privilege goes to the iron married to the stone, which gives the city a special atmosphere. It is the 'pronunciation of the North', a peculiar form of expression, which has to do with the character of its citizens.
