Jean-CLaude Lebensztejn Tag

Paris, Yvon Lambert Editeur, 1993
Two part blue cardboard box with handwritten title label content of 19 sheets containing Lebensztejn's text "Une rêverie émanée de mes loisirs," each accompanied by an original line drawing by Boltanski on tracing paper.
Each text page is thus overlaid with a drawing; the lines, drawn in 5 color pencils, link letters in the text, with the combinations of letters forming quotations from 5 writers; a letterpress key to the drawings gives the quotations (from Tadeusz Kantor, Federico Fellini, Jacques Demy, the Talmud and Ingmar Bergman) in mirror writing. Each text sheet/drawing pair is enclosed in a green paper folder.
There is an introductory page and a colophon page as well as a sheet explaining the work with the key to the drawings.
Boltanski's intervention into the book finding hidden texts within the larger commentary.
Very good condition with some minor fading to the blue box but internally VG++. Scarce.
