Read: For You The Traveller
A hand-bound guide to the world4-Oct-2012
Iranian-New Zealander artist, Nabil Sabio Azadi, has put together a truly beautiful book on behalf of Swiss NGO Nouvelle Planète. The book, For You The Traveller, serves as a directory of sorts filled with the names, stories, and telephone numbers of kind people who will act as a port-of-call to travellers passing through their region and bearing this guide.
Scattered throughout five continents, these generous strangers come from all walks of life and have even provided hand-drawn maps to help you get there. The book is only available in a strictly limited edition of 200 and each has been printed on recycled paper, hand-bound, and covered in recycled rabbit fur. Making this lovely idea even lovelier is that all proceeds will be donated to Nouvelle Planète to fund the construction of five footbridges in rural villages of Madagascar.
