THE BOOK:

"The Book of Origins:" A Huron creation myth collected in the 1940s by famous ethnologist Marius Barbeau serves as the basis for the Livres des Origines, a literary poetic even rewriting of the myth that we asked André Ricard, writer and homme de théatre, to produce. Professionals specializing in literary works then helped us to translate the work in English, and the two versions co-exist and are intermingled in the book. The final work, produced in a luxury edition and illustrated with original lithographs by artist Carmelle Martineau will be published as a limited, numbered edition. Out of one hundred and twenty-five copies, a hundred will be reserved for the international bookbinding competition. Our goal is to work at the junction of art and myth, in particular the great creation myths. One of these myths, which inspired us by its singularity, will serve as the figure-head of our project.
