Summary:After more than twenty years, the 25 sketch notebooks of poet and visual artist Sergio Altesor Licandro (Uruguay 1951) are reproduced in printed format. The notebooks "lived locked in a cardboard box, I moved many times, not only from apartments, but also from country ... I was always forced to carry [the box] with me. The notebooks accompanied me to Sweden in 2001, and from there to Uruguay again in 2000, from Spain to Sweden in 2001, and from there to Uruguay again in 2009 ... always carrying with me the cardboard box, reinforced with duct tape because of the wear and damage from the moves" (HKB Translation) Page 7. The collection of drawings in the notebooks are drawings (made with pencil, ink, watercolors, etc.) of trips with characters and landscapes from different places (Paris, Managua, Copenhagen, Mexico, Stockholm), of fantastic cities and jungles. The collection includes erotic drawings, forests, madonas inspired by religious images, cats, nudes, prison cells, prisoners, and portraits of friends and strangers.
