The Protest

O Protesto

Eduarda Lima

Orfeu Negro | may 2020 | 40 pages | 21,5 x 28 cm | hardcover

Birds stopped singing. Cats did not meow. And cows refused to give milk. Animals seemed to have made a pact… Eduarda Lima’s debut album is a story about the impact of humans on the planet. From little insects to big elephants and gorillas, animals silently scream together for a world of biodiversity and well-being. Beautifully illustrated, THE PROTEST delicately captures our imagination while encouraging critical thinking.
