Self-published, 1981. Item #3082 All covers have collages and 'fingerprints' with different shapes and colors."
Brown paper wrappers, 4 1/4 x 12 3/16 in., 32 pp., with one of the poems (no. 14) pasted to the cover and treated with fingerprints in several colors. A segment of the cover has been cut out to reveal the title and poet's name on the half-title page. The poems are in Portuguese.
Of this work, Aguiar notes: "the 22 movements of this book are themed around the finger, through verbal, experimental and visual poems. My most published poem ever (more than 50 times, in magazines, anthologies and catalogues) entitled 'Dois dedos de conversa' (small talk), created in 1978, is included in this book." He notes that this work was published in 1981, with a print run of 1000 copies that "practically sold out."
Aguiar continues: "In 1986, with a part of the remaining books, I made a series of collages on the cover of these books, with pieces of pages from copies that had been returned by bookstores with folds, creases or with dirty or torn covers, to which I 'printed' my own fingerprints with stamp ink.
