História de Portugal

We’ve illustrated and post produced this image for História de Portugal – a book collection published by Circulo de Leitores. This particular scene is illustrating the Portuguese World Expo, a huge exposition that took place in Lisbon in 1940. Sadly most of it was later removed due to politic issues.

However there are a few pictures on the web that can give us an idea of what it was, and while we were researching we’ve found at this website: http://tavares1952.no.sapo.pt/Expo1940/Expo1940.htm
