of the project

Electronics has been playing a role in our daily lives for more than 100 years. Discreet, but it has become omnipresent. Technical, it is a new environment in which Man expresses his desire to dominate, and therefore his need for protection. The eternal struggle between sword and shield is perpetuated.
Two crows attempt to surpass each other. They reproduce this endless struggle that is now taking place in the electromagnetic spectrum. This illustrated book gives the reader a fun way to discover this realm. An original approach that gives a new lease of life to the 36 Stratagems used for centuries.
