For You The Traveller

FYTT-Berlin

For You The Traveller: A Human Guide To The World is a unique hand-bound travel guidebook. In fact, it’s more like a directory of bighearted folks  who will act as ports-of-call to travelers passing through their country and bearing the guidebook. These hosts are scattered across the world from Europe to South America to Africa and beyond. They live in cities and rural areas alike. They are metalworkers, scientists, builders, farmers, ecologists, urban designers, musicians, shipwrights, leatherworkers, political analysts and many other things. Some are old, others are young. What they have in common is that they are interested in meeting travelers. If you share yourself with them, they will share their shelter, philosophy, and homes with you.

 For You The Traveller provides host’s names, stories, telephone numbers and hand-drawn maps to help you on your way. The book is currently available only in a strictly limited edition of 200. Each edition has been printed on recycled paper, hand-bound in oak and covered in recycled rabbit fur. 

For You The Traveller is the first book by artist Nabil Sabio Azadi. All profits from sale will be donated to Nouvelle Planète to fund the construction of five footbridges in the rural villages near Ambano, Madagascar. These footbridges will provide the villagers with safe passage to nearby townships in all weather conditions, allowing them to earn a living and send their children to school regularly.
