I would like to share in a book a collection of sculptures honoring Diana, Princess of Wales. For that I really need your help.
This book - in bilingual edition - tells of its author's passion for Princess Diana and his collection of sculptures, true works of art, that narrate the sixteen years of Diana's public life, as Princess of Wales, from the iconic photograph of the skirt
transparent until the day he left us - August 31, 1997 - and then some.
In the year that marks 25 years since the princess most loved by all left us, I would like to share my passion and works of art (sculptures of 45 cm and 50 cm in porcelain and vinyl), thus making a beautiful tribute to Diana - Princess of Wales. I intend that this book is also an object of collection and admiration by its readers, since it houses, and I have no doubt in what I now write, a unique collection in the world, as it brings together several exclusive sculptures and never commercialized. You will have a very high quality color print on matt coché paper and hardcover. However, without your help it will be virtually impossible to edit this book. That's why I appeal to your good taste, to your willingness to pay homage to this unique human being, and to have in your library a copy of this book, also unique, and thus trust your support for the bilingual edition (Portuguese/English). ).
If you are a fan of Princess Diana and would like to honor her, the time has come!
Support the edition of this book and celebrate his life, now that 25 years have passed since his departure.
Can I count on you?
In advance, my deepest thanks.
About the author
José Saldanha Gouveia was born in Luanda, Angola, having come to Portugal when he was just three years old, settling in Aveiro, his father's birthplace, which welcomed him as a Portuguese citizen.
As a child and young man, due to his father's teaching profession, he passed and studied in lands such as: Rio Meão, Figueira da Foz, Sernancelhe, Vila Nova de Paiva, Esmoriz, Aveiro, Lisbon and A Coruña. As an adult, and professionally, he lived four years in Viseu and one year in Macedo de Cavaleiros, returning definitively to Aveiro in December 2010.
He also had a career in athletics, having been regional champion in 80 and 100 meters flat, and in long jump, and was also national champion DN-Jovem/85 in 80 meters flat and 4x80 meters.
A film director and producer, he naturally ended up deviating from this art, turning to music, being a chorister in the Coro Voz Nua, in the Coral Group of Casa do Povo do Troviscal (Oliveira do Bairro), in the Gospel Choir of MUSA – Escola de Música e Artes de Aveiro and in the Charismatic Renewal Prayer Group – Adoramos Te. In 2014, he started as a musical agent, producing a concert with Simone de Oliveira, which took place at Teatro Aveirense on May 1, 2015.
He is currently a naturopath. Helping people balance their health is another of her passions.
“SAUDADE - 25 YEARS - PRINCESS DIANA – a collection” is her first book.
