Braço de Ferro (Isabel Carvalho & Pedro Nora) is a small Portuguese publisher that works with art & design.

This summer Braço de Ferro were invited by Spike Island, to undertake a residency in Bristol. The outcome of this residency will be a publication to be launched at Spike on 13th of September.
"Minor Breast", forms part of this project and is a collaboration with Bristol based artist Clare Thornton. The project has developed through their shared interests in community, collective production and a desire to get to the very heart of the matter.

"Minor Breast"
Will be a collection of contemporary reflections and strategies for surviving lost love, heart-break and getting through moments of crisis. Gathered through an international female network of friends, family and contacts, Minor Breast will focus on asymmetries, sexuality, sharing of intimacy and feminism. It seeks to be a creative and honest public platform through which you can share.

We invite you to share with us the advise that got you through.
Whether passed on by another or learned through direct experience we'd like to receive your creative and poetic contributions to surviving the hardest of times and navigating the interwoven highs and lows of life/love/work.

Please post your short, handwritten responses to:
Clare Thornton (if you are UK based)
75 Chelsea Road, Bristol, BS5 6AS
Or Isabel (if you are based anywhere else!)
