Un Coup De Des Jamais N'Abolira Le Hasard / Mallarme, Stephane; Masson, Andre., 1961

Identifier: CC-29554-30922
Scope and Contents

This publication was the first book commissioned for the bibliophile society, Du Livre et de l'Estampe Moderne. It was the personal copy of the bibliophile, Monsieur Roger Coulon. The prints were created in handwritten and freely drawn pages conceptualizing the idea of the freedom and majesty of Mallarme's poem. The colors used are subdued earth tones of green, orange, grey, gold and lavender suggesting earthly landscapes. The handwritten text of the poem coordinates with the drawings. The cover of the museum board folder and the slipcase are both decorated with applications of cloud-like cicles of white paint on a brown background. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
