Resulting from the reunion of five authors with singular universes and common sensibility, Claquement d’Aile is a collection of short stories, a mix between fiction and reality. Through the life stories of ordinary characters, the book combines extreme feelings, questioning, strong emotions, and explores the magic, the mystery and the unexpected of an encounter.

Claquement d’Aile was my second commissioned project with Editions Hope. I had to create the cover art, the page designs & typesetting.

Meeting in a Claquement d’Aile, being taken away in this fabulous trip to the encounter of our hidden Mes, to the encounter of the Other, to the encounter of our hidden desires, our fantasies…

One encounter can open the door of the abyss or hope, or to both…

All those moments that we never expect, that we dare not even imagine under penalty of deep anxiety, which in a few seconds destroy our dreams, our soul and our being alive instead of a new force …

Time of a Claquement d’Aile, we fall over in another dimension…

Claquement d’Aile is this unlikely encounter guided by the cawing of this mysterious raven. We are taken away by the magic of the moment where all our believes collapse in a millisecond. All swings. The breaker ravages our interiors of this sweet wave…

At the crossroads, Katy met the sweet Alice, fairy light in an austere world, this majestic being of darkness, Philippe. Then she was captivated by this smile full of this rising sun, Nina. While sailing on the virtual canvas, she was charmed by the melancholy of Bloody Countess. They traveled together, sharing this common thread of this magic moment. From these exchanges is born Claquement d’Aile where the styles, shapes merge, each according to their own secret inspiration…

At the occasion of the launch and the presentation of Claquement d’Aile, we was pleased to show some videos and music developed around the Universe of the book. Several artists have collaborated to highlight and explore the main themes with their own styles. You can discover them here:
