The New Voyager was created in 2014 by Emma Swinscoe when she lived in Los Angeles.
A French journalist and traveler at heart, she felt the need to create maps tailored for children, inspired by her daughters’ curiosity and her passion for illustration.
Emma now lives in the British country side and keeps on traveling and exploring new places.
The New Voyager team is now growing and “The New Voyager in Lisbon” was edited with Álvaro Ramos, at the head of O Editorial, a content agency and the co-founder of Cabana, a beautiful online store dedicated to unique products made in Portugal and beyond.
Each city guide is illustrated by a local and talented artist.
So far we have had the chance to work with these wonderful illustrators:
