Acqua Alta is a peculiar book. The story, as well as the drawings, (which carry the fluidity and lightness of a sketchbook), were created in the streets and secret passages of Venice. In a process of immersion, I spent a few days drawing the story of this girl, who, like me, gets lost and is enchanted by the mysteries of the city.
It’s a declaration of love to this city, which rewarded me with a story that I keep with affection in my trajectory.
The book was originally published by Bebel Abreu (Bebel Books), a long-time friend and companion in the universe of independent publishing.
