TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE

I have to say that I find it truly ironic, and even comical, to see published these texts that I have been writing over the years, in the midst of drawings, sketches and scribbles, carelessly and almost without realizing it.

Of course, someone would have read them, sooner or later, if the notebooks hadn't disappeared as well.

So, here they are just as they were written, at random, without order or connection, as is appropriate. I only eliminated a dozen "vents" that were too personal, intimate, and a few others that were perhaps unfair or inappropriate for consumption. [Jorge Martins]

Jorge Martins maintains in these writings an amazing continuity with what his own drawing expresses. The same concerns, a similar logic of approaching them, and an equally clean, uncluttered and elegant result. [Oscar Alonso Molina]

The writings gathered in this book were not born as loose, individual texts, designed to be published under the pretext of an event or a concrete aesthetic need: they were born following sketches, notes and those revelations that make the artists' notebooks one of those treasures that one feels like entering, stroll in the Robert Walser way and entertain us.[Miguel Fernández-Cid]

As soon as I saw the dozens of notebooks and notebooks that Jorge Martins had gathered in his atelier, and I started to leaf through them, I had an idea of ​​the wonderful world I would immerse myself in. [Joana Baião]
