This book collects multilingual comments left by anonymous visitors of the show “All Beauty Must Die” presented in 2010 at Museu Colecção Berardo. The exhibition included photographs, a video and posters with pop song lyrics and poetry of the English Romantic period, aiming to evoke an idyllic atmosphere inspired by the ideals of youth and nature.
The intention was to create an indie book of sorts, referencing the world of fanzines, by using a set of highly contrasted black and white images that establish a dialogue with anonymous phrases, be they love messages, political slogans, random thoughts, quotes or testimonies.
