As we know, Le Monde is a leading French newspaper. A few years ago, they moved from more central premises to modern facilities at Boulevard Blanqui. The facade is spectacular.
“Le Monde des livres”, “livres” meaning books. A number of authors were invited to talk and to be interviewed about their recent publications. There were also some sessions, where actors and actresses read extracts. I could not be present the whole weekend so of course I missed a few performances, including the ones of Umberto Eco and the newspaper’s cartoonist, Plantu.
One of them was FKDL (Franck Duval), who executed four collages during the weekend. FKDL is one of the urban artists to whom I have now and then related in my different posts about Paris street art.
I visited FKDL’s studio recently and came home with a collage, which is now on one of my walls. Luc Ferry kindly made a kind dedication in his recent – and most interesting – book, “La revolution de l’amour”. (Photo taken by a friend.)
I wish you a nice weekend!
