Item description for Disorder in Progress by Nando Costa...

Disorder in Progress

Following on the success of Brasil Inspired, Disorder in Progress digs deeper into Brazil to present a compelling overview of the diversity and vigor of Brazilian visual culture. Brazil is a country of incomparable cultural diversity and brash contradictions. While Brasil Inspired featured vivid inspirations of Brazil, Disorder in Progress shows the mixed reality and adopts the motto of the national flag "Ordem e Progresso".

Initiated by Brazilian designer Nando Costa (editor of Brasil Inspired and a key contemporary Brazilian designer) this book compiles original works by both unknown and internationally renowned designers. Violence, hardship and national tensions ranging from bureaucracy to large scale political corruption all conspire to provide a complex raw material. The work showcased in Disorder in Progress is simultaneously exquisite, refined, polished, attractive, elegant, fine, subtle and striking.

Illustrated in black and white in its entirety to contrast with the vibrant, glossy exterior, the book parallels the way Brazil can be characterized -- vibrant and colourful on the outside yet dark and complex inside.

Artists featured include: Carlos Bla, Colletivo Design, Stephan Doitschinoff, Raquel Falkenbach, Linn Olofsdotter, Eduardo Recife, Nando Costa and many more.

Reviews - What do customers think about Disorder in Progress?

Black and white  Dec 5, 2006
This is a very cool book. It is however printed black and white (as stated in the Description). I've seen some of the work in there before and feel it's a lot nicer in colour.
excellent.  Nov 4, 2006
disorder progress book is one of my favorites books about design process. Especially, if you are interested in brazilian design style, you can find beautiful approaches. There are many different kinds of style, designers. Nando Costa is the only one reason to buy this book: )
Brazil is (unfortunately) much more than Carnaval...  Jun 28, 2006
Well, I am brazilian and having a book that show out our reality is just enough reason to buy it, but it actually not only shows it but sparks our mind to life issues, like prostitution, hunger, politics, civil war, etc. AND all packed in black and white illustrations, thus making very clear its Quality.

Must have, absolutely.
