The box was crafted in Italy and presents the books and the prints inside a beautiful double case; two ribbons will help you to take out the books and a pair of gloves will enable you to manipulate the prints. The box is closed thanks to magnets.
An original origami, in the shape of an Emperor penguin and crafted by French paper artist Laure Devenelle  (, completes this deluxe edition.
Size of the prints: 18x27 cm (size of the sheet of paper: 21x30 cm).
Adélie, terre & mer (land & sea)
For the first time, photographers Vincent Munier and Laurent Ballesta have travelled together to discover the natural treasures of Adélie Land, in Antarctica.
Vincent Munier explored the ice field and the bird colonies, while Laurent Ballesta dove under the ice; one observed the emperor penguins and snow petrels in the open air, while the other dove with the Weddell seals and photographed the astonishing and unknown biodiversity of the Antarctic depths… Both have brought unique pictures from this exceptional trip, where the whiteness of the ice contrasts with the submarine blue.

« Adélie, Land & Sea » is the result of artistic and technique challenges, as well as a very fine object.

Text in French only (very short - two poems by director Luc Jacquet)
