“Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” This sentence of Ralph Waldo Emerson illustrates perfectly what The Outsiders is all about.
Gestalten’s latest book The Outsiders: New Outdoor of Creativity showcases the outlook and passions of the new creative scene that has emerged in travel. Those who are turning to the great outdoors when seeking peace, balance, and a touch of adventure to offset our daily grind.
This book is a must for all the globetrotters and adventurers who just need to spend a night in a tent far away from civilization sometimes or even just sit on a silent lake.
The Outsiders captures today’s outdoor and lifestyle entrepreneurs with illustrations, photography, graphic art as well as trends in product design and fashion. Complementing its rich selection of images, The Outsiders features interviews with key players from across the outdoor sector. It also provides insight into how an otherwise familiar subject appears to have lain dormant for years, only now to be revived by spirited people who see the world differently and can expand our horizons.
“Here, the fundamental challenges posed by the wilderness meet the aesthetic needs of the design-literate urbanite in ways that are atmospheric and likeable, with the occasional romantic or ironic wink.”
