SOUVENIRS is Marina Esmeraldo’s first art book. With new original drawings, poetry and the occasional recipe, the book features a collection of her travel memoirs since childhood, reflecting on the themes of belonging, alienation, growing up, feminism, and the timeless relationship between culture and food.
Stories are universal. They offer us a way of making sense of our world. Whether those stories are memories of friendship or betrayal; joy or longing; stories about heartache or chance encounters and falling in love, this is a uniquely human experience. All of this bound up in a beautiful, limited edition art piece and collectible item, in both English and Portuguese.
