Zone blanche is a term used in cartography to designate an area that is still unknown.

This book is an immersion in the abyss, twelve creatures appear progressively with a text, each one evolving in a more or less vast zone. 

The embossings were obtained from engravings made in wood, transferred in brass at a good scale and then printed on black paper at the Jean-Luc Seigneur workshop as part of my apprenticeship.
The prints were finalized in September 2009, limited to 20 copies, including 10 non-book prints. (the first half of the print is in colour and the second in black)
Short texts were engraved on Plexiglas and printed on black paper as well.
