Hi guys!

I've just launched my first ebook on Amazon Kindle and I would like to invite you to get to know my work:


$2,99 on Kindle​

It is entitled The Art of Belmonte and contains cartoons created by brazilian caricaturist Belmonte. They show the facts and characters of World War II and the beginning of Cold War. Although produced in 1930s and 1940s, it can be clearly seen that the message of these caricatures continues actual.

Benedito Carneiro Bastos Barreto was born on 15 May 1896, in São Paulo. He became known under the pseudonym Belmonte. He was researcher, drawing, painter, cartoonist and journalist. He started his career drawing for Alvorada magazine and, later, for Miscellanea magazine.

Belmonte's caricature was up to date with world problems, bringing information in a efficient way. It even provoked critics from Hitler's Propaganda Minister, Joseph Goebels in a pronouncement broadcasted by Berlin Radiostation. Thanks to his knowledge of political, social and economical problems he published his work in many international newspapers. He declined an invitation to become Metro Goldwyn Mayer's illustrator in New York. Instead he remained in the position of Advertisement Department Chief of ECR (Empresas Cinematográficas Reunidas) in São Paulo.

Belmonte died in consequence of tuberculosis on 19 April 1947.

I hope you like it. Please, feel free to make comments and share my work. :)

Best wishes to everyone!

kurahayashi--

Welcome to the Book Bazaar and congratulations on your new book![br][br]KBoards is a Kindle fan and reader forum. As you browse KBoards, keep in mind that self-promotion, of any sort, is ONLY allowed in the Book Bazaar. (You've posted your book thread in the right place; this is just our standard welcome that we place in all book threads. :)) [br][br]A brief recap of our rules follows: [br][br]--Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information. You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice). [br][br]--We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here [br][br]--While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days. Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then. You may modify the latest post to reflect new information. [br][br]--We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link. Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead. [br][br]--Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, our most successful authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KBoards as time allows. This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles! Please note that putting link information in the body of your posts outside the Book Bazaar constitutes self promotion; please leave your links for your profile signature that will automatically appear on each post. For information on more ways to promote here on KBoards, be sure to check out this thread: Authors: KBoards Tips & FAQ. [br][br]All this, and more, is included in our Forum Decorum: http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,36.0.html. Be sure to check it from time to time for the current guidelines and rules. [br][br]Thanks for being part of KBoards! Feel free to send us a PM if you have any questions. [br][br]Betsy & Ann [br]Book Bazaar Moderators
