"Carnet de Voyage" isn't the next novel by Craig Thompson (as he explains himself in the beginning of the book) but is a travel journal kept by Thompson as he traveled. The imagery (as always) is breath taking and simple, kept in the black and white motif Thompson is fond of. The "story" of the novel is also enrapturing, just as simple, beautiful, and effective as his drawings. One quote in particular comes to mind. Thompson states, "You have so many layers, that you can peel away a few, and everyone's so shocked or impressed that you're baring your soul, while to you it's nothing, because you know you've twenty more layers to go." The quote is a perfect example of Craig Thompson's talent with words. Thompson never ceases to peel away the dozens of layers he has when it comes to his personality and experiences and "Carnet De Voyage" is a prime example of this.
