Item #3347 BiMOT. Julien Blaine, Christian Poitevin.


Blaine, Julien (Christian Poitevin)

Bois le Roi, France: Editeurs Evidant, 1990.

First printing. Paperback. (250) pp., square 8vo. The original edition of this collection of more than two hundred concrete/conceptual poems (which was reprinted in 2011) by the founder and longtime editor of the very important international journal Doc(k)s. Each poem (and page) consists of two words, separated by a horizontal double rule, with extensive typographic and graphic play and intervention in the format throughout. This copy unmasks the man behind the pseudonym; inscribed as a New Year's gift "from Julien and Christian: the same man!" and with his business card, as Christian Poitevin, cultural delegate for the city of Marseille, laid in. Top corner bumped, and faint creasing and slight curl to covers; still a very good (and revealing) copy. Very Good. Item #3347
