Les Fables d'une Etrange Lucarne

Juli Susin, Véronique Bourgoin

« Let's go and meet these people. Just to talk a bit. About metaphysics, for example.»

Ray Bradbury


This book was designed as a testimony of the conversation between Susin, Bourgoin and Ohrt, in the restaurant car of the Prague – Berlin train. The dialogue features “artist” and “author” as a philosophical digression between Faust and Mephisto. Each box contains a photograph printed on a sensitized glass plate (20x28cm), superimposed by transparency with another image on barite paper. Each plate is unique. The box is covered with Japanese parchment, the frontispiece is embellished with a collage with the portrait of Bianca Swidrak. The booklet, placed opposite, is printed in offset, and bound in a jacket of the famous French household appliances brand “Darty”. This edition was made in Montreuil-sous-Bois by Juli Susin and Véronique Bourgoin and printed in Paris at Nory.
