Designed like a catalogue, but in a smaller format, the book reproduces all the texts of the exhibition, which traces the important stages of the troubled life of Furcy.

It is based on an analysis of a large number of documents from the archives, as well as scientific research carried out by Gilles Gérard, Doctor in anthropology and history, research by Sue Peabody, university lecturer in the state of Washington (United States) and Jérémy Boutier, legal historian.
