This publication features a series of drawings made by Ronald Cornelissen after a stay at the Netherlands Arctic Station on Spitsbergen, the largest island in the Svalbard archipelago. The scenes depicted in the first edition of Gerrit de Veer’s travel famous journal The Three Voyages of William Barents to the Arctic Regions (1594, 1595, and 1596) from 1596 served as the starting point for these drawings. The drawings mashup the work of Gerrit de Veer with that of Elzie Segar, John Carpenter, Michel Serres, Vladimir Demikhov and Mary Shelley and serves up an alternative image of the Arctic. The book, designed by Simon Davies, represents the drawings at different scales; from 1:1 (details) to 1:14 (whole drawings). This mimics the movement of visitors viewing the large scale drawings in an exhibition context. The books design refers to the subjects explored by the drawings as well as to the form of De Veer’s original journal.
