About the authors, Julie and Laure :
After geoscience engineering studies, Julie Sarperi follows her passion for graphic arts in 2004. She is now an online independent creative director, living in Paris. This independence allows her to travel a lot and fulfill her projects, Les carnets de traverse. Full of poetry, these travel notebooks are made of authentic Polaroid pictures, silver-based photography, words, music and sometimes videos. She went twice to Portugal in the last couple of years, and she shares with a great sensibility – as usual – her feelings about these trips.
Laure Fissore graduated from the Ensad (École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs – National Superior Decorative Arts School), but she did not wait for the end of her studies to be noticed by professionals. In August of 2009, she wins the first prize of a travel notebook contest organized by the national newspaper Libération ; a few months later, the travel magazines Bouts du Monde and A/R publish her work. In March of 2011, she exhibits “Impressions Sibériennes” at the Montparnasse Fnac store during the Ici et Demain student festival, and her travel notebook “Arménie” during the collective exhibition Carnets de voyage du musée de La Poste de Paris. After her participation as an illustrator to the book from Marie Faucher Il était une fois… des princes et des princesse, published by Carnets Nord, she goes to the United States and discovers Manhattan, which will inspire her lot of her drawings.
