“Silvestre is the fourth artist book resulting from the character Ed Gar and presents his first encounter with his alter-ego – Silvestre (the cat). It is part of a set of 7 books that will fictionalise the unfolding of a story around the exemplary upbringing of a child called Ed Gar in a universe suspended in time. Silvestre is part of the EdGarpa project, which involves composer João Guimarães, harpist Angelica V Salvi, stage director Ricardo Alves, sculptor Carlos Pinheiro, costume designer Irene Loureiro and two puppeteers.”
