“Memórias Póstumas de Brás Cubas” by Machado de Assis published by Editora Carambaia. Illustrated by Heloisa Etelvina using letterpress and woodcuts. 

Originally published in 1881, the novel is narrated by the dead protagonist Brás Cubas, who tells his own life story from beyond the grave, noting his mistakes and failed romances. The research involved spending some time at the cemeteries of São Paulo like a real goth.
