What if, instead of an illustrator travelling with his carnet de voyage, it was the carnet itself travelling from one city to the other, from an illustrator to the next one, how many things would it have to tell? Starting from this question in july 2015, in Turin it begun the long trip of the #carnetitinerante around Italy. It’s a travel booklet, a simple and clean object that morphs gradually: each page brings to unexplored and unknown places with unexpected paths.
Pages fill with different images, different strokes, each one has his own load of personal and abstract thoughts. It’s a physical, metaforical and coral trip of more than 40 “wandering pencils”: a precious group of suggestions, emotional illustrations and original ideas. Its stops are the different desks of the illustrators that opened its doors in different cities, filling it with colors, inks and pencils, invites and cyclings: each page has his own history and personalty. An artistic research about the topic of travelling: this is the idea where the project was born, designed and developed from the association called Circolarte.
