Walden Revisited – 
a hybrid novel about living in the woods


By the midst of the 19th century Henry David Thoreau withdrew from society with moving to a self-built wooden cabin at Lake Walden, Massachusetts.

«I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, 
to front only the essential facts of life and see if I could not learn 
what it had to teach - and not, when I came to die, 
discover that I had not lived.» 


«Walden tries to capture the wild and transfer 
it into the physical form of the book.»



«Walden Revisited tries to push the boundaries in book design




«Walden is a chance to dive deep 
into the circles of nature.»


«Walden is a calming thought in an 
accelerated surrounding.»
