The novel “Vol du nuit” by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry was selected for the 17th World Biennials of Art Bookbinding. All about the contest
Head of an airmail company, Rivière was an inflexible man. Ignoring the individual interest of pilots, its sole purpose is to prove that the plane is a faster way than the train to carry mail. For this, night flights must be imposed even if they are considered extremely dangerous. No matter! Rivière did not hesitate to commit the lives of his men. Rivière thus succeeds in his enterprise, but at what price! There are many accidents.
Among the victims, Fabien, a pilot bringing mail from Patagonia to Buenos Aires who, caught in a storm, will sink for attempting the feat. This is the duty of the River pilots who must remain faithful to their mission, ignoring fear. The next day, Rivière, despite the death of a crew, will not cancel any flight.
