The story

From the memory of a book of his childhood, a man seeks to discover the "secrecy of the books", secrecy of their attraction on the men and on him.

First seeks on the ideas, he cross the sentences, the words, the letters, for finally arriving at the spaces left blank between the letters and at the white page in its materiality.


Thus all started:

The child took the book in hand and opened it.

It could not read yet but had a presentiment of already that each book contained a secrecy registered in the heart of its fibres.


C'est ainsi que tout commença :

L'enfant prit le livre en main et l'ouvrit.

Il ne savait pas encore lire mais pressentait déjà que chaque livre contenait un secret inscrit au cœur de ses fibres.
