Original title: Periferias

“I don’t know if I’m from the periphery or not, but I’d like to be an ambassador for it. I want to defend it, cherish it, honour it and make it respected. And so I feel obliged to reveal all the magical secrets contained in this book. I have focused on a few peripheries to uncover their reality and magic. Come with me out to the periphery and find out how the world really works.”

                 Ricardo Cavolo

This work features over 150 ‘peripheral’ things:

1. Human beings: prisoners, albinos, gypsies, hikikomoris, etc.

2. Cities: Brazilian favelas, Japanese bed towns, etc.

3. Countries: Greenland, Bhutan, Mongolia, etc.

4. Animals: anteaters, sloths, duck-billed platypuses, etc.

5. Plants: thistles, moss, baobab trees, etc.

6. Artists: Robert Crumb, Lovecraft, etc.

The great Ricardo Cavolo makes the margins the centre of his new book, showing us that extraordinary things happen there: extraordinary because they are very rare but also magical.
