16 Massarelos

Featured in the book and exhibition We Love Books: A world tour, Echirolles, France, 2008

Massarelos is the name of central tram depot in Porto. The '16' in the title refers to the personal histories and memories of the 16 ex-employees who spent most of their working lives there. The book, informed by a people's history project, and allied to an accompanying exhibition, recalls and documents their personal stories and narratives.
The book adopts an gradated colour scheme in the first section as the background page colour slowly moves through a controlled colour palette in incremented steps.
