Additional Details

Number 47 of an unspecified limitation. A creative miniature book conceived by Martine Pringuet and Vinay, bound dos-a-dos, with pages folded in a progression of lengths, giving the initial appearance of fragmented text. The wood for the binding, plates, and case was sourced from trees in the famous vineyard town of Gigondas in the Upper Vaucluse region of Provence, where the book was also printed.
