Publisher's Description

Edition of 500 copies. 

The book uses as it's narrative structure a fictional board game and the correspondence of an unknown character with this game.

INTERGALÁTICO, the published debut of Guilherme Gerais, is a visually based literary essay. Comprising a narrative in black and white and filled with photographs, illustrations, and small tracings, the book is presented as a map, a guide, a trail to a ritualistic journey, but with an enigmatic starting point: a missing space.

Captured in cities like Londrina, Capadocia, Prague and Istanbul, these images are alternated in an order that requires immediate participation of the reader: from the beginning there is the invitation for a game, an outcome, a challenge between what is seen and what remains. The strategy, in this case, articulated spontaneously by the photographer, always points to the random, the disorder, the immediacy of an alleged previous life -- something that is divided between land, space, and the virtual universe.
