Bon Voyage, the artist book from the independent publisher STUDIO WOOM, is about how the moment of travel coexists within us and melts into our life, and sometimes inflates like a fantasy. The concept of the book portrays the traveler's notebook, which contains actual drawings and pieces made and collected by the artist while traveling.
