Lisboa na rua

First self publication

Book about Lisbon. Project that I started when I moved to Lisbon in 2016. I wrote and drew about my discovery of the city, its story, its streets and its habitants. 

I finished and launched this projet 7 months after my first step in the portuguese capital, and presented it at the Rendez-vous du carnet de voyage 2017 and 2019.
