Antonio Pigafetta: Account of the First Voyage Around the WorldEstúdio João Campos
Antonio Pigafetta’s account of the first circumnavigation voyage is probably the most important document associated with the notable feat of Fernão de Magalhães.
As a tribute to both transformative roles — the Pigafetta’s account and the Magalhães’ journey —, the cover of this Portuguese edition emphasizes the idea of duality. The before and the after. The departure and the arrival. The stalwart armada and the depleted survivors. The darkness of ignorance and the light of knowledge.
The graphic tension between the front and back cover represents a journey that would forever change the way we perceive the world and how we perceive knowledge itself.
