Dom Casmurro is an 1899 novel written by Brazilian author Machado de Assis and it is widely regarded as one of the most important books ever written in Portuguese language. It is written as a fictional memoir by a distrusting, jealous husband, the narrator, however, is not a reliable conveyor of the story as it is a dark comedy.
This special edition published by Carambaia is an attempt to honour this important book. It brings illustrations by Brazilian artist Carlos Issa who made interventions on photographs of Rio de Janeiro in the 19th century.
