With all their courage, Bournel-Bosson (illustrator) and Maxime Gueugneau (journalist) set off to discover an exceptional humus: the “Diagonale du Vide”, a not very shiny name to designate a quarter of the French territory. Indeed, this fictitious line – debatable and disputed – joins zones of low population density on an almost continuous route from the Ardennes to the Pyrénées-Atlantiques. This has led to disdain and profound ignorance on the part of the rest of France. The objective was twofold: to fight against the lack of knowledge of these territories and, of course, to have as much fun as possible. Simon and Maxime therefore faced the winds and the tides, but above all the freeway areas, dubious bars, student parties, pickle vendors, nun corpses, sandwich stores, tex-mex, ghosts and other sacred can stores to convince themselves that there was nothing “empty” in this diagonal. In four stages going from Saint-Dizier to Pau, on nearly 1000km, passing by Auxerre, Commentry, Vézelay, Montluçon, Bar-sur-Aube, Tulle, Uzerche, Tarbes or Lourdes, the two loulous lived quite a few adventures that they are pleased to tell us in texts and images. Initially published in Kiblind magazine during the 2016-2017 season, the four reports that make up the book have been reviewed, corrected and enhanced with new texts, crisp information and exclusive illustrations.
