Travels with a donkey in the Cévennes
Travels with a donkey in the Cévennes, written by Robert Louis Stevenson, narrates the 12-day journey of the author through the mountains of the Cévennes with a stubborn donkey, Modestine.
The intent of the project was to recreate the experience narrated by the author. First, through the material chosen for the cover, a fabric that mimics the aspect of the donkey’s skin. Second, through the irregular alignment of the text, making the reader to walk through the story as if he was in the journey with Stevenson.
The path created by the alignment is marked along the book with the cities that the author passed through, helping the reader to situate himself.
