Tami, The Train Operator

All journeys begin with a single step
Summary

 

Tami is the most impeccable engineer in the entire railway network. Until one day, unfortunately - or not - his train derails. 

What if other paths were possible? 

What life and what landscapes will he discover by looking beyond the railway tracks? 

A book that talks about the right of human beings to leave the established course/morality/circumstances in order to find alternative paths that allow us to live fully. The story, despite the multiple readings it offers, is inseparable from the Black Lives Matter movement.    

The picturebook also offers 1 fold-out triptych  in the middle of the story, that breaks the format of the classic diptych. It is just at the moment when the protagonist leaves the railway track, to make more evident the fact of breaking with the established schemes.
