La politique éditoriale d’une maison d’édition indépendante de voyage comme définition du genre carnet de voyage

Abstract : The travel sketchbook is an artistic and literary genre with multiple definitions. However, it has standardised characteristics when published which raise the issue of the publisher’s role in the travel sketchbook definition. The question of this research is: to what extent does the editorial policy of an independent travel publisher reveal the travel sketchbook’s artistic, literary and graphic conception and make it to a full editorial genre? The aim is to evaluate the gap between the author’s travel sketchbook artistic conception and the processes by which the publisher adapts this conception to its own editorial policy. The methodology used was built on a five months internship in an independent travel publishing house, four semi-directive interviews and a literature about work sociology, as well as a body of research about the book genre question. The main results show that the publisher plays a preponderant role in the sketchbook definition and that it does not always answer to the authors’ expectations. Despite the necessary professional relationship between the publisher, the graphic designer and the authors, it cannot always be egalitarian and thus cause disagreements. To a greater extent, the edited travel sketchbook is defined by rules that make it an staging of the travel sketchbook’s manuscript.
