Braço de Ferro – arte & design is an independent, self-sustained editorial project, coordinated by artist Isabel Carvalho and graphic designer Pedro Nora, based in Porto since 2007.

The editorial team of Braço de Ferro sees in each book produced a way for public and political action (public-action) aiming at potentiate reflection, enriching the reader and providing an alternative to the established vehicles of knowledge.

Every option, being it editorial, artistic or conceptual, results from a close dialogue between the editors and the authors of each project and developed further in an experimental environment, always questioning the concept of the book.
