The extensive selection of reproduction allows the reader to appreciate the details of the designers' creative thinking and the variety of aesthetic solutions. The accompanying text, by Maria Cecilia Loschiavo, examines the elements that brought about the genesis of modern Brazilian design, weaving an analysis that guides the reader to present dialogues between the arts.
