The concept is simple: The Jaunt finds an artist and send them on a trip to anywhere in the world that they have never been before. The artist then soaks up all of the local impressions and inspirations at their destination. From freshly brewed local coffee to small boutiques, neoclassical architecture, overcrowded tourist sights or whatever else comes across their path. The artists also document their adventures and impressions in a travel blog that can be followed online, which gives even more insight into the artist’s perspective. Each destination and artist is different, making each trip truly unique.

Together with three of the artists we worked on three special edition versions in an edition of 250. Parisian based illustrator Tom Haugomat who visited the island of Yakushima, Japan translated the grandness of nature in to the design for his special edition book, Chicagoan painter Laura Berger who travelled to Lima, Peru designed a balanced cover in her well recognizable color palette and Atlanta based artist Hense who travelled to Ring of Kerry, Ireland used some colorful shapes to design his limited edition cover.
