Where Do We Go When We Disappear? by Isabel Minhos Martins


Where Do We Go When We Disappear? by Isabel Minhos Martins

Apart from a few exceptions, no one can say with absolute certainty where people go when they disappear. Do we go to the same place that lost socks go to? Or do we perhaps evaporate into the heavens in the same way that puddles do? Taking advantage of the lack of definitive answers, this beautifully illustrated book launches new hypotheses, from the serious to the nonsensical, by drawing on the world around us for ideas. Tackling a serious theme in a philosophical and poetic way, Where Do We Go When We Disappear? concludes that 'Nothing is too empty a place to be in. And if we all go there, it will cease to be nothing in no time'.
