Labour of love (…letters)

54th Graphics Culture Week, from August 20 to 26

Books, pages, written symbols, objects of reason or of passion beyond reason.

Can we have communication without desire ?

The language of love in the graphic arts brings us back to making written signs come to life, and to the tensions and desires which stretch the typographer in his or her liaison role.

A pluridisciplinary exploration of this inebriation and an ecstatic journey into the world of graphics in Lurs (Alpes de Haute-Provence) from 20th to 26th of August 2006, in the company of typographers, graphists, historians, authors and with a few big surprises.
