THE NOTEBOOK

Notebook structure

The notebook served as a support for notes (bookkeeping and topographic ones), a travel journal (nature descriptions, accounts of daily experiences, conversations held or heard, jokes) a record of subjects of interest to its author (historical facts, reproduction of poetry, philosophical and occultist texts, general thoughts), and drafts, some of them only visible because they were kept by the author, others covered by ink and only unveiled by use of Osiris photography. Because it is a personal notebook, it does not have a standardized organization. There are different contents in the same place, including overlapping texts and images: the author wrote in ink over inscriptions and drawings previously made in pencil. Most of the journey’s production was made in graphite, while the content of the notes with no explicit link to the journey was made in ink.
