No. 3

Pamphlet No. 3, The OBVERSE / L’Avers, contains a series of short poems by French writer Dorothée Piffard.  A bilingual edition makes the collaboration between the poet herself and translator/editor Olivia Heal explicit.

THE OBVERSE

 ”  On the mountain  /  the fruits on  /  the multisecular trees  /  grow and glut  /  for no one –  “

Each pamphlet has a unique painting by Julien Bobo inserted as frontispiece.  Not interpretation nor immediate response, his work reiterates the far-sighted and exploratory wordage of the poet.
