An original origami in the shape of an emperor penguin, made by the French designer Laure Devenelle(, completes the set.

Adélie, terre & mer (land & sea)

For the first time, Vincent Munier and underwater photographer Laurent Ballesta set off together to discover the natural treasures of Adelie Land, in Antarctica.

Vincent Munier explored the pack ice and bird colonies, while Laurent Ballesta immersed himself under the ice; one observed emperor penguins and snow petrels in the open air, while the other dived with Weddell seals and discovered the astonishing and unknown biodiversity of the Antarctic depths...

Both have brought back unique images from this journey, where the bright white of the ice floe contrasts with the deep blue of the sea bed. The result of a technical as well as an artistic feat, this book is also a very beautiful object.
