Concept and design
This is the Limited Edition reprinting of the first live-written, thermal-printed and published Scrollino from the Scrollino® Catch d’Écriture (Writing Match) on May 12, 2016 at Atelier MilleFeuilles in Nantes, France. Eight French writers in luchador masks wrestled with words to find out who would come out on top. This Scrollino® collects the writings of all participants: Willy Wolf, El Profesor Cabrón, La rouquine Carmelite, El Cascador, Ludwig Von Pleïer, Silverita, El Pepito, and Absolut Limonov.

Mix and Match
Interactive and user-friendly
Scrollino® consists of a unique rewinding mechanism (The Scroller), a Scrollino box, and a paper roll to unwind at your own pace. With each Scrollino comes a natural-wood pencil that makes the magic happen and helps the user to rewind the paper.
1. Pull on the tab
Designed for simplicity
To open the Scrollino simply pull on the tab (Paper Lip) to reveal the story. The Paper Lip not only protects the paper roll, it also serves to prevent the paper from disappearing once you rewind your Scrollino.
2. Discover the Scrollino
4.27 yards / 3.90 meters to unroll
Storytelling by the Foot: Experience the Scrollino concept, a revolution for reading. In the Scrollino Catch d’Écriture discover the short texts written within the tough constraints of a live writing battle. Authors had a few words and images as prompts to write something in only a couple of minutes.
3. Rewind with a pencil
Each Scrollino comes with a wooden pencil. The Scroller works with most standard pens and pencils (hexagonal, rounded, triangular, etc.). If you don’t have any handy, check your kitchen drawers or toolbox!

About the Writing Battle
Over the course of an evening, eight writing wrestlers gathered to show off their creative skills in a high-energy atmosphere. As they wrote, their words were projected for the audience to comment on, and even encourage the writer to change their text! Another challenge obliged the writers partway through to pick up and continue their opponent’s story.
Handcrafted and specially designed
The reader’s touch makes the magic happen. How? Through the specially designed Scroller conceived and invented by Ludmila & Sylvain Favardin, which allows the readers to scroll through the stories. You can feel the high-quality craftsmanship in each fold of the box, in the assembly of the Scroller, and in the embossing on the cover.
For this first Scrollino, we used an ink-free thermal printing technique in order to print out each writer’s piece on the spot. At the end of the night, we published the compiled writings produced over the course of the evening into a long Scrollino for each of the attendees.
