Puzzle Sauvage

Dominique Marquet-Lausch


Puzzle Sauvage by Dominique Marquet-Lausch / A mysterious wordless book first published by Gallimard in 1988 (in their imprint for challenging works, "Le Sourire qui mord"), just reprinted by Ion Editions in France. Feels in the spirit of Remy Charlip's strangest books.

44 pages, saddled-stitched, paper cover with flaps, 7.5 x 10.5 inches
