Nem tudo que reluz é Ouro is a publication that was born from the love of
illustration, self-publishing and collaborative work.
· We wanted to produce an object which would be able to promote the productionas an end itself;· We wanted to create an object which could promote the interest in materiality,
taking advantage of an excepcional technical and artistic quality;
· We wanted to develop an object which could reveal "dedication" as one the
most important characteristics.
At a time when we are required a creative process increasingly austere,Nem tudo que reluz é Ouro intends to subvert the fanzine format,
disguising itself as a luxury object: the amount of guest authors,
the printing technique and the graphic elements try to emphasize it.
We think that the proverb that was chosen — All that glitters is not gold,
gives creative space for the authors to explore their own expression.
