Product Description

More than half-century after its first edition we have “dogcided” to give a second life to this precious little book created by a not so little artist. The book that, like its author, seemed “dorgmant” is a conpendium where the reader finds rare canine breeds represented by the typical drawing style of Tóssan, the “dogsigner” of this humorous gallery where we are even invited to make our “dognation” in a blank page left expressly for that purpose. We’ll leave you now in the company of Tóssan’s humor and his timeless “dogcile” friends

AUTHOR

António Fernando dos Santos, better known as Tóssan, was born in Vila Real de Santo António, in 1918. A truly versatile artist that has left us works in illustration, painting, caricature, poetry and graphic design. As an illustrator and graphic designer, he created dozens of book covers, with a special mention to the collaboration with writer Leonel Neves, illustrating his texts for children. In the forties, already in Coimbra, where he was the caricaturist of hundreds of university students, he cooperates with the University Students Theatre Company. Responsible for the graphical works of Brazil’s embassy in Lisbon between 1961 and 1964, he becomes responsible after 1975 for the coordination of the General Direction of Diffusion publishing sector. In the press he was one of the founding members of Diário de Lisboa’s juvenile supplement and collaborated with the humorous newspaper “O Bisnau”. He dies in Lisbon in 1991.
