Robert W Service A Sourdough's Quest

Charlotte Service-Longépé

ISBN 9782955543740

Biographical Novel, Illustrated

508 pages, 5.8×8.3 inches, 2021

 

Driven by wanderlust, a twenty-two-year-old Scot embarks for Canada in 1896. Along the journey led by a diversity of jobs, from ploughman to bank clerk, from hobo to poet, the young man goes from happy to painful experiences while enjoying the sweet breath of freedom and love of Nature.

In the wild Yukon, it’s not the gold nuggets of the Gold Rush that twinkle in his eyes, but rather the brainwave to discover the source of his first literary successes.

Illustrated with photographs, maps and drawings, this novel is taking the reader in a kind of travel diary following the thrilling life quest of a man looking to find his destiny. A biography lively penned thanks to the dedication of his great-granddaughter Charlotte Service-Longépé.

Pendant près de cinquante ans, Jean Dagorne a sillonné des centaines de milliers de kilomètres au guidon de machines les plus diverses. Il a vécu intensément sa passion pour la moto et les voyages, depuis l’Europe jusqu’aux lointaines pistes de l’Atlas marocain. A 73 ans, toujours pas rangé des motos, il décide de se lancer un nouveau défi: retourner dans les Balkans pour revoir les pays qu’il a traversés au cours des étés 1975 et 1976.

En trois semaines, l’auteur, seul au guidon de sa Honda, parcourt 7900 km à travers 15 pays. Son carnet de route est illustré de clichés en noir et blanc que l’auteur a lui-même développés à son retour.

 

Restes Humains - Human Remains

Jacopo Brancati & Sonia Olcese

ISBN 9782955543702

Photography, Edition bilingue français/anglais

59 pages, 31x31 cm, 2018

 

Cette série d'images mystérieuses en noir et blanc prises par Jacopo Brancati est un voyage silencieux sur l'Ile des Impressionnistes dans les Yvelines près de Paris... mais de l'autre coté du miroir. Ce livre est empreint des vestiges d’une époque révolue, là où A. Renoir immortalisa notamment Les Canotiers à Chatou.

Sonia Olcese raconte dans la préface: «L'Auteur utilise la lumière si spéciale de la vallée de la Seine pour décrire un monde d'ombres. Là où les hommes ont essayé à plusieurs reprises de s'installer, il ne reste plus que des restes meurtris de leur présence, que l'oubli et la nature engloutissent petit à petit, inexorablement.»

 

Viapori Dockyard, a Bridge to the Future

Jacopo Brancati

Photography

106 pages, 25x20 cm, 20

 

The Viapori dockyard boasts almost three centuries of uninterrupted activity. Where warships were once built, ships with historical significance are now restored.

Every winter the dockyard shelters a fleet of traditional wooden sailing ships built in the aftermath of WWII for the coastal trade.

They ensured the supply of building materials for the reconstruction of Helsinki, were meant to work hard and live short.

Thanks to two generations of people who sailed and lovingly preserved them, a few of these ships survive.

 

Jaïnen Matka Suomeen, a Winter Voyage to Finland

Jacopo Brancati

Photography

122 pages, 31x31 cm, 20

 

A journey with the community of the Finnish maritime pilots, their traditions and environment. Jacopo Brancati spent three winters at different pilot stations along the coast from the eastern border to the west, then up north. Welcomed by the pilots as a fellow worker, he shared their everyday life, work and long waiting hours at the pilot stations and aboard the ships landing and leaving Finland.

This experience is narrated like in a fresco; a work commissioned by the National Maritime museum of Finland with the support of Finnpilot, the pilotage state owned company. From this photographic art work, entirely made with film cameras, the Maritime Museum of Finland, Merikeskus Vellamo has chosen sixty fine art prints for its collections.
