O reino deste mundo


Mais uma capa para um livro de Alejo Carpentier publicado pela Camões e Companhia. A um esboço e desenho iniciais juntei e adaptei um dos muitos retratos de Toussaint L’Ouverture (1743-1803), uma das figuras da revolução haitiana do século XVIII que serve de cenário do romance. Em breve nas livrarias.

THE KINGDOM OF THIS WORLD
Another cover for another of Alejo Carpentier’s novels. To an initial sketch and ink drawing, I added a detail of one of the many known portraits of Toussaint Louverture (1743-1803), a key figure in the Haitian revolution of the 18th century which serves as historical background for the novel.
