Bráulio Amado

Collection of posters made in 2015 by Bráulio Amado. He found an old hard drive while stuck at home during COVID-19 times and decided to put this up together so that SSHH and Stolen Books (in Portugal) could make some extra income and keep things afloat.

This is the only newspaper that won’t give you anxiety right now.

Solin Sala Ra

Manuel Donada

It is not talking about the origin of this book, because this book, infinite, varied, diverse, always similar and always different, perpetual and changing, has existed from all eternity. Nothing has been discovered, everything has been found. But in the heart of this artifact everything changes, everything is transformed, everything evolves. These pages have not existed at any time or any place, the message itself has an origin and the magic emanating from each of its pages can never be trained.

At this point, there is nothing to do. It would be lovely to wait for the revolution of an admirable science.

This book is dedicated, in part, to all those punks of sectarian mentality and false morals, those who feed the annihilation of the individual and those who are part of a camouflaged class, who die of fear and grief with the idea of being isolated. To all those who do not violently reject the supporters of an absurd and pestilent elite.

To the loose dogs of abstract camaraderie that obstructs the spiritual, individual and cosmic revolution. To the victims of the revolution block, accomplices of permanent repression, duck-faced corpses and wild manners, all obstacles of the universal protest.

Keeping this in mind, Stolen Books is not a database of stolen or missing books, but an independent publisher (based in Lisbon, Portugal) that steals (with the agreement of the authors) and publishes works whose absence constitutes an offense to the international book market. Stolen Books reproduces copies of visual projects, purposely designed for the book format, working with established names alongside new and upcoming talents.

Thus, these publications aim to reduce the gap between the vision of the artists — who work at the boundaries between visual art, film, video, photography, design, advertising, music and writing — and that of the viewers.
