GONCALO VIANA | NEW PICTURE BOOK TRUE COLOURS FOR ORFUE NEGRO PUBLISHING
November 12, 2019 Gonçalo Viana
We are super duper excited to share this new picture book by GONÇALO VIANA called “Troca-Tintas” or “True Colours” in English. This book is a dream come true for him, 3 years in the making but completely worth it — the first of hopefully many of Gonçalo’s kids books that was written and illustrated by himself. It is going to be published by Orfeu Negro Publishing in Portugal, which was voted the best European Kidlit publishing house at last year’s Bologna Fair. “The book is a short story about swapped colours, a messy landscape and untidy happiness. Once upon a time there were two friends, an orange dog, a white tree and a green…cloud? Hold on! This book is wrong! TRUE COLOURS is a funny and visually poetic story about freedom and an upside down journey through surrealist landscapes where rain falls from trees and clouds bear fruit. An eccentric book that invites us to paint the world in many tones and colours.” Enormous congrats all the way around Gonçalo, the book is as gorgeous as it looks!
