About the books

document 4ème de couverture In 1996, the centenary of Robert Sexé, Janpol SCHULZ edited by self-publishing, the book "Sexé in the Land of the Soviets", a beautiful book of 155 pages, circulation of more than 3000 copies, this one depicting the journeys of the reporter-motorcyclist Vendée through his first two trips: Paris - Constantinople - Paris and Paris - Moscow - Paris. The book will quickly find its audience, so much so that it is not found today, with the exception of a few online auction sites.

In May 2010, this site opened its doors on the internet, allowing to find information, documents and photos for those interested in the universe, the work, the story of Robert Sexé, and more generally to old bikes. The site has made its merry way, albeit modest, he allowed interest to note intact for the world traveler, and especially for the parallels with another globetrotter, this paper, by the name of Tintin the character created by Hergé.

Janpol Schulz was somewhat addressed the subject in the book quoted above, mainly with a comparison between the cover of "Tintin in the Land of the Soviets" and a photograph of Robert Sexé. In recent years, taking stock pictures of Robert, he could see other parallels, especially since, among other things, the book "Hergé" by Pierre Assouline, we know more about the working methods the Belgian maestro, namely, a huge documentation to meet its accuracy requirement for his comics. Possibly, Robert Sexé could be one of these sources through the stories of his travels and his photographs.

Thus would seem, originally from a publisher a book on these parallels, as an investigation of two inspectors (Dumond and Dumont) on the trail of Robert Sexé and Tintin. A richly illustrated book, with pictures of Robert never published to date. This book could not be done, it was decided to adapt it in digital PDF, via a kiosk in line, with for the occasion, a "reprint" digital book "Sexé in the Land of the soviets" appeared in 1996. Both books are available for Download and at a modest price.

It is true he had been nicer to publish these two works on paper. Today the goal is achieved, namely that both books are available to readers, digitally of course, but we do not lose hope that we can in the future, these flip books in paper form, media noble and more than ever in the air.
