The Academic Book Curatorship “Angela Maria Brasil Biaggio” was founded in February 2021 with the proposal to republish, with the label of the publisher, books already published in Brazil and internationally. Our mission is to reinforce the national academic scenario with new international works, launching its first editions in the Portuguese language (pt-br) and bring visibility to national authors, whose work is not in circulation, without new editions and / or impressions by their previous publishers.
