The art of sketching : a book in English

I am happy and honored to present my new book translated into English “L’art du carnet de voyage” (éditions Gallimard, collection Alternatives).

The art of sketching : 400 years of travel diaries is a book published by Promopress, 2016.

“Memories of other places, travel notebooks chronicle the experience of getting to know each other and ourselves. They have been companions of artists from Dürer to Philip Delord, going through the orientalists and explorers. The Art of Travel illustrates the great scientific and journalistic adventures in history, from the Egyptian campaign to the war in Iraq. It also explores more intimate territories, capturing the essence of our world to preserve the remembrance. Between text and image, this stunning collection travels through the centuries revealing the most beautiful pages of a very human adventure.”

The art book is illustrated with over forty artists – travelers who publish many travel books for twenty years. They present their artistic work and editorial throughout their travels all over the world in the fifth and final part of the book.The variety of graphic arts, media, viewpoints, subjects and artistic styles is fascinating and makes you want to create an illustrated travel journal.
