White


A challenge unlike any other, this white monochrome, so représentative of this work without apology that so few binders are capable of.
Jacqueline Poydenot, by covering four of O.Mérijon's painting in white boxcalf has created a book-object, "4 fauteuils blancs", an animated structure on a Japanese binding of a novel by the artist. It would have hardly been possible to go any further in this approach having heard O.Mérijon define the monochrome white as:

"The ultimate conquest of all colours combined in one…"

Neverless, the key is needed to what could have remained extremely intellectual.
