    Fernando Pessoa (1888–1935), the greatest Portuguese modernist poet, appears in this book in some of his lesser-known facets, such as a writer of short stories. So, for the cover, the justified and duplicated name with a contemporary sans serif (Untitled Sans), instead of aligned to the left (as it’s usual for poems), represents this “other side” of Fernando Pessoa.

    Contos completos (“Complete Stories“) was published by Editora Carambaia. Its design was awarded as AIGA 50 Covers 2018 Winner and as STA 100 2019 Winner.

    The title and Pessoa’s name are set in A2 Antwerp on the book’s spine.
