Back in 2018, with a backpack and a sketch book, I traveled to the USA to hike through the Appalachian Mountains. After walking 2200 miles over 8 months, I ended up with hundreds of sketches, drawings and the story of my trip.
I decided to create a book!
Through this book, I want to share my journey with the aid of a series of illustrations and comics of the famous Appalachian Trail.
A book for lovers of nature, large open spaces and mountains.
A book to share the wonder of travel.
Inspired by my journey and written with humour and in a poetic way, I want to take the readers on this adventure, to make them live this journey through my eyes. “I have thought of this book as a moment of sweetness, a moment of joy”.
A book for life!
- Approximately 170 pages
- Color printed
- Excellent quality paper
- Hard cover
Use of financing
- 5% : Kickstarter
- 35% : Printing costs of the book, screen prints and T-shirts
Screen prints and T-shirts will be handmade by me!
- 60% : Shipping costs and travel to the USA to print the books and deliver them. It would be nice to sell more than 100 books so that I can give some kind of payment to my proofreader and the screen-print workshop that is helping me realize this project.
I am an artist and a thru-hiker. I live in Paris, France. In the past I have worked as an artistic director in the publishing industry. I am also a street-artist and I am art therapist in healing centers. I love nature and discovering new things, the U.S.A, the fanzine world and comics. Every new little thing gets me excited!
Risks and challenges
In the past, I have been in charge of many publications and mock-ups.
I have most of the material for the book. The main challenge is to find the best way to take you with me on this journey, to be able to make you dream. As long as I’m able to finance the printing and shipping costs the rest will be fine!
Since the shipping costs are quite expensive between the USA and France, I will have the books printed in the USA and will do the deliveries within this country. I should have a minimum of 100 orders to make the whole project a reality. Thank you so much for your support!
