To mark the release of volume 2 of Jika's "Carnet de Visage", an exhibition of works from the art book was held at the "le 55" gallery in the Eyrolles bookshop from 3 to 18 November 2023.

For the publication of his art book, Jika has selected around twenty portraits from "Carnet de Visage", which he has reinterpreted using woodcut techniques. in black and white and illuminated, as well as 3 large formats on dibond.
