Here Is a Good Place

Ana Pessoa & Joana Estrela

This notebook is a journal. This journal is a place. A place where Ana Pessoa’s words and Joana Estrela’s illustrations get together. A certain kind of graphic journal, written and drawn in four hands, where we can find Gloomy Teresa’s notes and thoughts — about her family, her friends and her school, dreams and birds, quotes she overheard at home or on the streets, about freedom and the future, the night, the wind. And also her spontaneous drawings of cats, pots, people, hangers or views from her window, which cross Teresa’s path each day.
