Isidore Isou, a Romanian-born French poet, film critic, and artist, founded the art and literary Lettrist movement in Paris in the mid-1940s. Drawing inspiration from Dada and Surrealism, the Lettrist body of work encompasses all areas of art and culture, including poetry, film, painting, and political theory. The movement was named for its early focus on letters and other visual or spoken symbols. This limited volume is their manifesto on photography. Incredibly scarce; as of July 2015, WorldCat locates only one institutional holding in North America. (Inventory #: 48306)
