Paris suburbs

"In those days on uneasiness, when the suburbs is regarded as one of the most worn out stereotypes, this travel book is just like a fresh breeze. Far away from dull scenery, violence and concrete towers, the authors, experienced travellers, chose to pass over the "ring" in order to explore twenty-two districts on the "small belt". Therefore, Saint-Denis, Montreuil, Charenton, Vincennes are watercolored, drawn and decorated with genuine collages and can be seen under a new light."

"The association "Les Carnettistes Tribulants" was founded in 2003, when some grafic designers and illustrators met and decided to promote travel books. One of their first "expeditions" take place in about twenty towns of parisians suburbs between Montrouge and Clichy, Neuilly and Saint-Mandé. The scenes they paint - drawn and watercolored - have nothing to do with recent cliches : they represent a peaceful daily life, between a market in Malakoff, a hammam in Saint-Denis and small gardens in Aubervilliers."

The "Nouvel Observateur"

"Yes; life does exist on the other side of the ring. That sounds quite out of place, but if you read the foreword of this nomadic suburbs signed by "Les Carnettistes Tribulants", there seems to be an urgent need for reminding it. As the authors say as an introduction in that charming sketching book :"We were quite aware that the suburb was considered without glory, despised by Parisians who know nothing about it but highways ramps and disliked even by its own inhabitants."
