Entry Description

Omdesign is responsible for the design and printing of the book “Martins da Costa - Contos
Vividos” which portrays the life and work of the well-known painter, João Martins da Costa
(1921-2005), an important figure of Portuguese painting in the last century.

Martins da Costa was born in Coimbra, studied painting at the School of Fine Arts in Porto
and travelled throughout the world. Won several national and international awards and his
works are currently on exhibit in museums and private collection all over the world.

1990s. It also has some photos and reproductions of some of his paintings.

same time making the book appealing and easy to read.
