Somewhere in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Gustavo Piqueira is quietly dancing on the edge. “Seu Azul” (“Blue Sky”), the latest book by the head of design studio Casa Rex, seeks to playfully dish the dirt on that nation’s eccentric culture. And wouldn’t you know it, this one actually leaves some of that dirt (well, sand) clinging to your fingers.
The setup: A fictional couple attempts to break free of their stultifying daily life by debating some very real news headlines gleaned from Brazil’s online news networks. This being Brazil, those headlines are of the “Batman’s tips to achieve success” and “Multi-millionaire seeks couple for a trip to Mars” variety.
