About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and French

This set contains two books and a short, 32-minute film. The five authors bring their personal vision of the Finnish taiga. From the first pages begins an artistic journey into the heart of the boreal forest, peat bogs and lakes, seen through the prism of photography, drawing and writing.

The book is the result of 10 years of work to discover in-depth the hidden world of the taiga. With the seasons and the sweet variations of colours, a beautiful part is taken by the great animals that are emblematic of the boreal forest: bears, wolves, wolverines, elks and grouse grace these pages and are the centerpieces of beautiful adventures lived and told by the authors.

This is all underpinned by a scientific and naturalistic approach. The most up-to-date knowledge of the functioning of this ecosystem accompanies the illustrations.

Large volume (also available separately):
Format 30 × 24 cm, 222 pages, hardback. Printing on art paper. The book features a hundred photographs by Thomas Roger and Olivier Larrey

Small volume:
Format 16 × 24 cm, 239 pages, hardback. Printing on art paper. The book includes a scientific text by Mervi Laaksonen, a watercolour book by Yves Fagnart and a chapter on Eero Kemilä's photographs and field stories.

The film:
During about 30 minutes the authors introduce you to their vision of the taiga in different seasons. With an intimate approach, the photographers and the illustrator share their field work, the passion for these large wild spaces that animate them, and will tell you some beautiful encounters they have had. A true immersion in the great boreal forest.

Summary in French:
Dans ce coffret comprenant deux ouvrages et un film (32'), les cinq auteurs apportent leur vision personnelle de la taïga finlandaise. Dès les premières pages débute un voyage artistique au cœur de la forêt boréale, des tourbières et des lacs, par le prisme de la photographie, du dessin et de l'écriture.

L'ouvrage résume 10 années de travail pour découvrir en profondeur le monde discret de la taïga. Au fil des saisons et des douces variations de couleurs, la part belle est donnée aux grands animaux emblématiques de la forêt boréale. Ours, loups, gloutons ou bien encore élans ou tétras foulent le papier et sont les pièces maîtresses de belles aventures vécues et racontées par les auteurs.

L'approche scientifique et naturaliste n'est bien sûr pas oubliée. Les connaissances les plus actualisées du fonctionnement de cet écosystème accompagnent les illustrations.

Grand volume:
Format 30*24 cm, 220 pages environ, reliure rigide. Impression sur papier d'art.  Le livre comportera une centaine de photographies légendées de Thomas ROGER et Olivier LARREY

Petit volume:
Format 16*24 cm, 250 pages environ, reliure rigide. Impression sur papier d'art. Le livre comportera un texte scientifique de Mervi LAAKSONEN, un cahier d'aquarelles  d'Yves FAGNART et un chapitre consacré aux photographies et récits de terrain d'Eero KEMILA.

Le film:
Durant 30 minutes environ les auteurs vous feront découvrir leur vision de la Taïga à différentes saisons. Avec une approche intimiste, les photographes et l'illustrateur vous feront partager leur travail de terrain, la passion pour ces grandes espaces sauvages qui les animent, et vous raconteront quelques belles rencontres vécues. Une véritable immersion dans la grande forêt boréale.
