 This modest booklet was published as a symbolic tribute to Cape Verdean leader Amílcar Cabral. Unlike many other photobooks from this context which portrayed militant imagery, this particular book is very subtle. It features straightforward pictures of local handicrafts, which links to Cabral’s idea that the basis for national reconstruction against Portuguese domination should be rooted in a return to the people’s own culture, particularly material culture.
