Brazilian Clichés was composed using images from an old catalog of Brazilian letterpress clichés. But the reason for its title is not only due to the clichés used for the composition of its illustrations. At each page's turn, we run into other types of Brazilian clichés: historical ones, like the arrival of the Portuguese, the catechizing of native Indians, coffee and gold economic cycles... It even includes contemporary Brazilian clichés, full of traffic jams, debts, closed condominiums and alienation – portrayed in an irreverent contemporary visual narrative.
