Grande Sertão: Veredas

One of the stories at Museu da Língua Portuguesa shows a Brazilian literary masterpiece (considered by many as the most important one): Grande Sertão: Veredas (or, as translated, The Devil to Pay in the Backlands), by Guimarães Rosa. There are copies, on fabric, of the pages of the book, with the editing marks made by hand by the author.

Spread all around, many pieces of art in different media, show excerpts of the book. Some of these pieces are curious, because you have to be standing at an especific spot to make out what's written, as you can see below:

One of the sentences on this is one of the most important ones: Viver é muito perigoso, or Living is extremely dangerous.
