Memorial de Maria Moura

The edition of my linocut Lace Face (1996) sold out many years ago, but lately it seems to have taken on a life of its own. See Blog Post Tuesday, March 23, 2021. The work will also be included my APW George Collie Memorial Print Award show at the Australian Print Workshop in March, 2022.

In January 2021, I was approached by a Brazilian publisher seeking permission to reproduce Lace Face on the front cover of a special edition of the biography Memorial de Maria Moura by Rachel de Queiroz. The book has since been published, and this is the result. 

Maria Lacerda de Moura (1887-1945) was an author, educator, political activist and social reformer whose significance in both Brazilian and feminist history can’t be stressed highly enough. You can read about her HERE and HERE.

The biography, which is in Portuguese, is published by Grupo Editorial Record, Brazil in a limited edition of 2000. The website for Grupo Editorial Record (Record Publishing Group) is HERE*. For more about the special edition, go HERE* and for the Kindle and paperback versions of the book, go HERE*. (*Note: these sites are in Portuguese. The new edition will not be published in English).

Memorial de Maria Moura was first published in 1992. A  biography of its author, Rachel de Queiroz, (1919-2003) is HERE.
