The new and second book from the Jaunt documents the creative process of 40 artists traveling all over the world. During these 40 inspiring trips the artists take photo’s, write stories, draw in their sketchbooks and eventually make a design for a limited edition artwork. The book chronicles each stage of this process.
The Jaunt creates opportunities and possibilities for artists. The project allows artists to travel the world and find inspiration – not just during the trip, but lasting inspiration that hopefully permeates their entire artistic practise. The Jaunt’s mission is to catalyse progress and feed fresh insight into the creative process of our artists. The first step in this process is taking the artist out of their comfort zone and allowing them experience completely new surroundings.
The books are made in co-operation with Jeroen Smeets & Jimme Bakker who took on the Art Direction of the book and translated all 40 trips in an easy to read book, the printing good guys from Wilco Art Books who translated the design in to printed pages, and last but not least the bookbinding magician Fopma Wier who worked together with us to build this handmade hardcover book from scratch.
