This project is a collaboration with the Martin Bodmer foundation in Geneva. Megan Bonfils and I decided to create an adaptation for children of the book, Voyage vers le nord, written by Gerrit de Ver and published in 1598 by Theodore de Bry.

We divided the story in 13 differents steps. At every stop starts an action of the story tale as the attack of polar bear, the construction of the caban, etc. After each action, the extract of the original text appears to the reader. Nova Zembla allows to children to understand the adventure of the explorer Gerrit de Ver.

The application is the result of one week of workshop with Douglas Stanley and Cassandre Poirier Simon.
The main goal of this project was to share the cultural wealth of the Bodmer foundation.
