Jour Bleu – Éditions du Cercle d’Art
Editor: Les Éditions du Cercle d’Art, Paris
Project: Fold out book (Leporello) JOUR BLEU
Authors: Tahar Ben Jelloun – Thomas Dhellemmes
A brief overview
This has been a very unique project in which the creative, editorial and production part has had to work very well coordinated from the beginning. This book-object linked a friendship between the authors, with a common thread, the colour blue, through the different landscapes that the photographer Thomas Dhellemmes had captured in a lot of places through his travels around the world and the old friendship with the writer Tahar Ben Jelloun who writes a kind of poetic evocation under each image. It was intended that everything should have a continuity, like a chain evoking each moment, like a kind of old photographic development, hence the choice to make a long fold out, the pages of the book can be turned as in a traditional book, or if you prefer you can stretch it out in a kind of very long Leporello of up to 152 cm.
