I was invited by my friend Lucas Pereira Nery to participate in this project, which aimed to research, analyze and display the typographic universe of Curitiba, my hometown, after the installation of Typographia Paranaense in 1854.
Based on photographic copies and editorials from the period up to 1945, the invited artists were responsible for the transposition of the imagery research from the shelves of the House of Memory to nowadays, through typographic reinterpretations. The posters were printed in a rudimentary letterpress machine and displayed at the Memorial of Curitiba in 2017.
