L'Origine(s) du Monde

While developing Issue One of The Outpost magazine, we wanted to create a supplement that would extend the discourse of the issue The Possibility of Moving Forward.
To do so, we decided to produce a children's book.

The parameters: Do not insult their intelligence.
The goal: Discuss serious topics (politics, society, life, death, sexuality and family) in a fantasy framework that would protect the children from the crudeness of the topics, not their truth, hoping that 'the perils of living in 3D' become less perilous, or at least...more interesting.

L'Origine(s) du Monde deals with knowledge, and the relationship of the individual with the universe. It presents the hypothesis that each and every one of us is the origin of the world, and to make the world a better place, each and every one of us must make their point in time and space better. 
L'Origine(s) du Monde is licensed under CreativeCommons to encourage its translation into different media. Currently, it's being adapted to the theater by Lina Abiad and her class at LAU and is a selected participant at the Bologna Children's Book fair.
