Storytelling and exploration. The first bilingual and biannual magazine that makes you travel all around the world !
After over 2 years of loyal service on the web, Les Others intends to carry its beautiful stories into your library by publishing a biannual and bilingual printed edition, right halfway between a travel diary and a beautiful art book.
For more than 2 years, Les Others team feeds www.lesothers.com on a daily basis with some original content oriented around 3 main axes : travel, food and style. These inspiring stories, sincerely told by their protagonists and accompanied by photos and illustrations, take you every morning for a walk on the massive glaciers of Patagonia, a lovely hit-the-road in Scandinavia or a delicious gyosas preparation in a Japanese kitchen.
Les Others, it’s also a daily dose of fresh news and deep interviews, full of escape and inspiration, all selected with passion and presented in a minimalist format to encourage your reading comfort.
It is now time to bring these stories in the real world, offering them the support they deserve.

This first volume will gather the original work of more than 20 contributors coming from all over the world around one theme : the morning. A thematic in affinity with our editorial line and forcefully symbolizing the beginning of this new adventure. From one page to an other, rediscover the first moments of the day experienced by those who create, criss-cross roads and immortalize every second of their time on this earth.
The magazine is organized around 6 complementary areas :
- immersive stories
- inspiring interviews
- creative essays
- meticulously assembled style selections
- original photo series
- tasty illustrated recipes
The success of the main objective, fixed at 8 800 euros, will enable the printing of the first 1 000 copies of the magazine, and thus seal the launch of this great adventure. The secondary objectives, for their part, will allow us on one hand to distribute the magazine in a maximum of retail stores, and on the other to significantly accelerate our overall development as a new business.
Around the 3 founders, pictured below, has formed a team of a dozen personalities (writers, translators, graphic designers, photo and videographers, ...), whom are now working with twenty contributors.
They worked on the volume I : Elisa Routa, Nanna Prieler, Shannon Powell, Simm + huis, Tomas Hein, Caroline Dowsett, Avan Podhajsky, Beth Druce, Emmy Reis, Marlee Pasinetti, Louis Garnier, Sarah Rowland, Camille Haimet, Adrien Frilley, Feryel Mokni, Anja Besson Rasolondraide, Nicolas Foret et Clément Beaudier.

To make this great project come true, we need your help. The first objective of the campaign, set at 8 800 euros, has been precisely established by our team. It takes into account the printing process of the volume, the overall work towards our visual identity, the compensation of our contributors, the remuneration of KissBankers and the organisation of the upcoming launch party.
Special thanks to Quentin Moretti for the design of the cover, to our good friends at Maison Carnot for their work on the video and to Jordi Le Bolloch' for lending his sweet voice.
