This year it’s Laurent Bachmann – the first graphic designer of the Auderset workshop – who took up the challenge of its design. He knew how to promote Alain’s drawings, whilst controlling their sheer folly with great graphic restraint, turning the diary really into a choice work of art (not usual for a diary). The white hardback cover, its unusual horizontal format, and (for the first time in its history) printed in color, only confirm that what we hold in our hands is an object of a rare genre!
The theme is Marcel, the little gullible and endearing character, who without really intending to, invites us to reflect on life, its values and who from time to time meets the divine; all done joyfully and in good fun. The comic strips are in color and – under the dates- in shades of grey, it’s almost a mini, comic strip book….
All sprinkled with appropriate Bible verses, in short, a fine recipe to make life beautiful every day!
Real impact: You only need one student in a school class having one, to ensure that at the end of the year the whole class will have read it (thanks to boring lessons)!
Many testimonies, stand takings, general discussions on their themes, privileged contacts and the discovery of faith in others, have reached us following each of the preceding editions…..
Limited edition (dates oblige!) there are not enough for everyone!
