The Book of Disquiet: An Immoral Drama is the first book by Alex Prager, produced in collaboration with Austrian artist Mercedes Helnwein (they founded Devil’s Porchlight Press together in 2004). A small dimension book printed on thick laminated cardboard paper looks like children’s book. Each artist contributed seven pieces and explore seven deadly sins. The title of the book - The Book of Disquiet - is credited to Fernando Pessoa, one of the greatest poets of existential malaise of the twentieth century.
