Douglas WolkSome snack. Carnet is more than 200 pages of exquisitely observed drawings, flush with the sheer joy of making pictures. Thompson draws crowds, tiles, young women, old men, buildings; he caricatures himself with rubbery limbs and a pointy nose; he diagrams a dinner of raclette in the Alps, the changes in scenery on the way out of Marrakech, and the anatomy of the camel he rides through the Sahara. He provides extensive handwritten captions for everything, analyzing his own changing perceptions of himself as a traveler and giving the book the casual, digressive narrative of a letter home.
