Olá Leitor.

 

Este é o artigo que eu demorei DEMAIS pra escrever. Ele me assombrava rotineiramente e já perdi as contas de quantas vezes me sentei em frente ao computador para escrevê-lo, abandonando-o no meio do processo ou desistindo de escrevê-lo enquanto organizava minhas idéias para ele. Acho que agora vai.

 

Se você acompanha o blog vai se lembrar que em 2014 eu postei aqui um artigo recomendando aos meus leitores que participassem no financiamento coletivo do livro FIGOPEDIA, o primeiro volume de uma coleção de livros sobre o hobby de pintura de miniaturas escrito por Jérémie Bonamant Teboul.

Hello Reader.

 

This is the article I took way too long to write. It often haunted me and I’ve lost count of how many times I sat down to write it and left without finishing it, or gave up in the middle to organize my ideas. I think this time I’ll publish it.

 

If you follow the blog regularly you’ll probably remember that in 2014 I wrote an article recommending that my readers should pledge for the crowdfunding campaign of the FIGOPEDIA book, the first volume of a collection of books about the hobby of miniature painting written by Jérémie Bonamant Teboul.

Hello Reader.

 

I will often mention in articles here on the blog and on conversations about the hobby that miniature painting is a skill to be learnt and practiced like any other ability.

 

It should come as no surprise that the internet is today one of the largest repositories of information about pretty much any subject the human mind might be interested in, and miniature painting wouldn’t be the exception to that rule. There’s online forums devoted to the subject, written tutorials published on blogs, video ones uploaded to Youtube, so it is only a matter of sitting down in front of the computer screen and do some research before finding a way to teach yourself that new painting technique.

 

But what should one do if the internet is down and the painting muse has been ringing those bells inside your head? Call me old fashioned but I’m a huge sucker for books. There is some intrinsic form of magic about handling tomes of knowledge, and a very special kind of magic when the book is about miniatures.
