This title will be available soon. Mario Bellatin is a writer who wants his books always on hand, not only the texts but the books themselves. What he wants then is a section of his studio where at all times there will be thousands of physical copies, one hundred thousand, to be exact, of the books written during his lifetime.

This title will be available soon. For the past six years, I have been retracing some of Paul Gauguin’s steps. He led a famously peripatetic life, and I did not attempt to follow him systematically or in the order of his moves. More simply, I took advantage of lectures and conferences and organized vacations so as to see not only his works, as closely as possible, but also the places and things he had seen and sometimes represented.
