A travel journal by definition with its external elastic band for holding all those travel ephemera, tickets, pamphlets and restaurant receipts. Except inside is not a blank notebook but cut-down sections of the Saturday Travel Section of The Guardian, acting not as a travel guide but that contemporary prompt, projecting the myth of personal validation through travel to exotic places to be catalogued on social media. The book is grounded by a traditional looking ball-and-chain, representing all the inhibiting factors impeding adventure; but the ball is virtually weightless, whereas the chain is heavy and solid, as are our links to our myths.
