This is the third title in the “ Écumes ” collection, the aim of which is to offer hybrid books based on texts and other forms of creation.
Alternating haikus, tercets and prose poems, the texts here engage in a subtle dialogue with the images – fragments of landscape crossed by birds –, to leave room for sensations and thoughts.
