Cold for all the summer beyond the panes, for all the tropical heat of the room itself, a harsh thin light glared through the windows, hungrily seeking some draped lay figure, some pallid shape of academic goose-flesh, but finding only the glass and nickel and bleakly shining porcelain of a laboratory. Wintriness responded to wintriness. The overalls of the workers were white, their hands gloved with a pale corpse-coloured rubber. The light was frozen, dead, a ghost.

Famous performer Harry Houdini (d. 1892) needs very little introduction. As a stunt man and escapologist, breaking free from handcuffs and chains in death-defying acts was his specialities; he was even known as “Harry Handcuff Houdini� in his early days.

VARIG was the first airline founded in Brazil, in 1927. From 1965 until 1990 it was Brazil’s leading and almost only international airline. In 2005, Varig went into judicial reorganization, and in 2006 it was split into two companies. Varig was my favorite airline until it closed for good in 2007. If Varig were to come back as the number one airline in Brazil like it once was, it would have to go through a complete rebranding. The following pages contain my view of what Varig should look like if it came back to the market.
