Within a week of my return, my legs were aching because I was no longer using them. The sky was less blue, further away; the wind and clouds were no longer actors, but only elements of the scenery. The people around me were busy for reasons I had forgotten. I understood little by little that this would be the most beautiful journey of my life, the one we call initiatory. – N.J.
A tireless globetrotter, Nicolas Jolivot tells the story of the world he travels through from a human perspective in his illustrated diaries. Of all the travels that inspired his art creation, one outstands: his tour around France on foot to meet the winds when he was about twenty years old. It is this first and essential journey that he tells in this book.
