In this case, some of the drawings are based on formal models found on a primitive Portuguese toy which lets children construct a limited number of human forms from a set of wooden shapes. Others are isnpired by paintings in the Portuguese National Museum, located across the street from the York House Residencia. This beautifully produced volume includes along with the drawings a selection of fictional writings by the Greek author Demosthenes Davvetas.
