Tin Cabin Publishing is a self-publishing venture part of Esther Bordet Painting. It was initiated in the spring of 2022 as a channel for publishing short comics and short written pieces about and around comics.

Tin Cabin Publishing also establishes my love for the creative process of making books. The logo is directly inspired from the place I live and built with my own hands.


Tin Cabin Publishing is located on the traditional lands of the Ta'an Kwach'an Council and the Kwanlin Dün First Nation, near the city of Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, Canada.





Part One: The journey to Nepal

In May 2024, I will be self-publishing the first part of my first graphic novel: “Makalu – the journey to Nepal”. This book provides some historical context about the 1954-55 French expeditions to the Himalaya, and follows the alpinists on their epic journey from Europe to India, and then Nepal. The full story, comprising three additional chapters, will be released in 2025.

Loon Unchained ties my two identities: it is a reference to both the Canadian bird icon, and to the famous French satiric newspaper Le Canard Enchaîné (the chained duck). This zine is a personal, bilingual, self-curated artistic project, which I mean to use as a space to share new and older comics and cartoons, and fulfill my curiosity for the book making and publication process. 


Makalu: The story behind the panels

Released June 2022

An illustrated pamphlet to revisit two years of graphic novel creation on the Makalu project, to clarify the not-so-obvious link between geology and comics creation, and to entice potential readers to follow the rest of the project until its completion! The booklet comprises an exclusive 8-pages comics as well as sketches and original panels from the graphic novel.
