JOÃO ON A WIRE

Written and Illustrated by Roger Mello
Translated from the Portuguese by Daniel Hahn

A fisherman’s young son lies in bed at night, tucked into his homespun bedcover. As he drifts off to sleep, he dreams that the bedcover comes to life, weaving and re-weaving itself into whimsical shapes and figures. Mello brings João’s nocturnal flights of fancy to life with intricate line drawings that pay homage to Brazilian folk art and embroidery.
