Just got this book in the post, another beautiful publication involving Scott Bourne I’ll have to get signed next time I see him. Here’s the blurb. This thing is NICE! Printed on mixed paper stocks and in both English and French, I’m really looking forward to a good read and some inspiring pics thanks to Scott and his gang.
Thanks to the mailman and whoever sent this!
Scott Bourne, well-known skateboarder and writer, takes us on a Balkan road-trip through Serbia, Montenegro, Macedonia and Albania to Split, Croatia, by the Adriatic sea. The journey to the end of the night, with the rhythm of an old-time sailor song, of an author always seeking for discoveries and strangeness. Bertrand Trichet and Sergej Vutuc exhibit their photographs, as if to express the different sensations of the same journey, and give a hand to Lars Greiwe, Jaka Babnik and to Scott Bourne himself to illustrate the text. Pierre Villanoba, principal dancer of the San Francisco Ballet, signs the foreword and Romain Pareja has left his tattoo studio to draw mythological figures which make this Balkan journal unique, to the East of the Adriatic.
