 BOURNAZEL, DIANE DE:,  Le Chant des Possibles. Marliac (Limousin) France 2018.
BOURNAZEL, DIANE DE:
Le Chant des Possibles. Marliac (Limousin) France 2018.
A unique, magnificent artist's book, entirely handmade. Narrow folio. (13.8 x 33.2 cm) Lvs. (8). Seven double-page illustrations, fully illuminated by hand, using watercolour, ink and collage. Original sprinkled paper boards, blue on gold coloured paper, manuscript title labels, housed in matching slipcase. The beautiful binding is by Armelle Guégant. Diane Bournazel (born 1956) is a French painter, printmaker and book illustrator represented in both private and public collections in France and elsewhere. Her books contain mysterious narratives or poetry without words which illustrate life, death and love in a puzzling way. Her detailed illustrations are filled with people, animals and other beings hovering in enigmatic environments. The stories are not straightforward and are always open to an interpretation and reinterpretation which may vary from time to time. The centre of the book has window cut-outs which make it possible to look both forward and backward. This together with small pieces of collage and striking decorated zigzag edges invites us to read the book in so many different ways. The colophon reads: "Ce livre est unique - je l'ai imaginé et réalisé durant l'été 2018, a Marliac, oú, les nuits, nous contemplons les étoiles. Armelle Guégant l'a relié, en douceur". Ref: "L'Univers menchanté de Diane de Bournazel". Art & Métiers du Livre, 316, 2016, pp. 24-31.

TZARA, TRISTAN / DELAUNAY, SONIA (ILLS.):
Le coeur à gaz: costumes de Sonia Delaunay. [Paris], Jacques Damase, [1977].
Narrow folio portfolio. Size: 21 x 45 cm. As issued on heavy paper. With 51 numbered pages printed on recto only on (17) folded sheets + 2 pages and one blank. Comprising the text of the play "Le coeur à gaz" by Dadaist writer Tristan Tzara. Accompanied by twelve lithographs by Sonia Delanay. Comprising seven theatre costumes by Sonia Delaunay which are colour reproductions of the gouache maquettes made for the performance at Théátre Michel in 1923, two more double page lithographs (one issued as extra title page and one with two costumes) and three lithographed decorations in the text. Original card covers with striking design in black, red and cream. Housed in specially made plexiglas slipcase. Limited edition of 150 copies, of which this is no. XXI (of XXV reserved for collaborators) on this publication and signed by S. Delanuay on the colophon. (The first 25 copies in the series were accompanied by a supplementary suite of 7 signed lithographs). A gorgeous copy of this beautiful and rare work. Tristan Tzara (1896-1963) was the renowned Roman born writer and artist who was known for being one of the central figures of the anti-establishment Dada movement. His noted play "Le cÏur à gaz" was first staged as part of the 1921 "Dada Salon" at the Galerie Montaigne in Paris. It was written as a parody of classical drama in the form of an absurd dialogue between characters named after human body parts; mouth, ear, eye, nose, neck and eyebrow (Tzara himself). The second stage production, also titled "Le CÏur à barbe" was performed at Théátre Michel in July 1923. Sonia Delaunay, the famous Ukrainian-born French artist, designed and costumed the production, creating bright coloured eccentric geometrically-shaped costumes of thick cardboard. The play has been viewed as the final event in the evolution of Dada as a cultural movement.
