Poetry books

A simple sheet of folded paper is sent to the poet who, from his handwriting, arranges the title, the text, the colophon, all illuminated by the original intervention of a visual artist: painting, collage, drawing … And from poor, the book becomes rich.

Exhibited again in 2006, 2008 and 2011, the two thousand volumes of this collection have been on deposit at Ronsard's home in the new poetry library since March 2008. Some of these works are presented to the public according to a thematic choice renewed every four months.
