It arises like a whispered disease and builds on hate, ambition and fear. It cannot hear nor see, still less feel; though, it crushes and silences. War is likely the most perennial serial product ever invented. In a world full of pitfalls, never before has this illustrated poem by José Jorge Letria and André Letria been so noteworthy.
War marks the reunion of these authors, following If I Were A Book’ (their previous book)'s hit.

A magnificent whole.
