Dad is an exciting anthropological, historical and experiential journey with brief texts and illustrations full of history, love, self-sacrifice, care, passion, dedication, effort, wisdom; and also of contradictions, presences and absences. It is a book based on historical research but it is intended to be healing and to become a space shared by men from all over the world who have in common having been fathers, but who were also sons.
This is a book written from a critical review of fatherhood, and that aims to accompany the transformation of men towards more egalitarian models and practices, from compassion and
tenderness, and for love.
A touching illustrated album to learn, enjoy, and understand the bond between fathers and their children throughout history and cultures. An ode to a more conscious, participative and present fatherhood.
In this book we will find 25 stories inspired by biographical details of 25 paternal figures, some of them historical, others part of popular culture, but all have something in common: the experience of fatherhood.
Through these examples, families who share the reading of the book will celebrate in an emotional way the special bond that is emerging around this new fatherhood that is dawning today, more participative, more emotional, egalitarian, caring, peaceful and present, of men with their daughters and sons.
