Fautrier’s illustrations are lithographs printed by the Mourlot brothers, both figurative and sculptural in design. The love poem Lespugue, dedicated to Leona Jeanne, is made up of 18 stanzas of 8 lines, two of which diverge typographically due to the last two lines being split across two pages; this first happens at the moment when the poet sees words light up around him and his lover, and he pushes her knees apart, ‘trembling with tenderness’. The second occurrence is when he wonders where his lover ends: she converges with the landscape, the din of the mountains and the blooming limes. Curves and snakes, light and mother-of-pearl, shadows and earth: Ganzo’s world always sparkles.
