Eldorado Volume One is about inspired travellers that leave their safe homes and set off to explore. With an aesthetic approach and a poetic yet informative writing, the publication gathers eleven stories celebrating both the intimate inner experience of the travelers and the sublimity of the great outdoors from an artistic and unique point of view. Far from the magnificent and pompous travel narrative, the search for Eldorado is not just about the epic moments. Eldorado crafts stories that tells every aspect of the journey and seeks beauty in the authenticity.
“We designed the first volume of Eldorado to give the reader a calm and contemplative reading and visual experience. We gave great prominence to images and visuals: no borders, no frames. Pure images.” Albert Folch, founder, MagCulture
In this first volume, Eldorado aims at capturing the sensations of sliding down smoking mountains on a unicycle; of seeing the majestic spectacle of water shaping the Icelandic landscape; of rediscovering the primitive treasures of Galápagos; of being a diver traveling only across Ocean waters; of riding until the end of Patagonia and meeting the last men preserving a fallen Soviet utopia; of finding back one’s roots in the golden beaches of California, putting the pieces together in a surf trip to Barbados, break with your girlfriend and travelling one year alone with your bike across the endless Asia. An essay about food and the transforming power of fire, together with a tip for a unique experience in a cave house, caps the publication.
“We are trying to slow down the rhythm, and to let our readers take a closer look at things. Eldorado wants to show places and make the reader imagine them at the same time.” Vincenzo Angileri, editor in chief, STACK Magazine
