ERRATA is a completely handmade edition, of which only 50 copies were made, all bound, numbered and signed by hand. 

"With this book, I intended to create a unique and enigmatic object that escaped the idea of being easily labelled as a photobook. In my opinion, it is more of an "object-book", being closer to an object and less of a book. It was designed to stimulate the senses, having an intimate and very elliptical perception curve, due to the very nature of what was photographed.

Nuno Moreira nvites writers to look upon the atmosphere of the images and conceive a text. This time the invitation was made to David Soares, a renowned author in the world of comics and novels of historical and occult themes.
Moreira says that "it is very important to mention the participation of the writer David Soares in this edition because the result is, in my view, very well achieved. When I invite an author to write a text for a book, what I try to do is see how his authorial style combines with mine, as disparate languages can take on new contours. What fascinates me about this visual game between image and text is what we build in the intersection of these two languages (writing with words and with light) - that is, what the reader can imagine. Since this is a book that pays direct homage to literature and imagination, David was instrumental in creating an object so unusual and special.” 

In books as in life, options are not casualties and more often than not one is surprised by the sudden fire of chance, mystery, accident, catastrophe, or merely reality imposing its cruel grip on our controlled comfort. The error is mostly avoided. The accident is overlooked as tragic. The mystery is perhaps more a risk than an instigating surprise. 

Bellow the surface, in the deep inkling waters of turning pages and flickering shadows lies the truth. Everything makes sense in reverse
