Letters from Debord to Wolman

news_dec_17_03The secret “Edition Privé Hors Commerce” has released a very interesting PDF containing not only all the letters sent from Debord to Wolman from 1952 to 1956, but also some critical notes that permits to understand better the context. Strange times when the letters to Hervé Falcou have been published in a luxury edition, but not this amazing correspondence, apart from this bootleg initiative.

Goodbye Paul Destribats

news_dec_17_05The unique avant-garde book collector Paul Destribats, born in 1926, died recently at 91. Apart from two “Directives” canvases of Debord and the fantastic hypergraphic novel “No More” of Jean-Louis Brau he once owned, he was also having in his collection books by Wolman, Dufrêne, Spacagna and Lemaître, even if he was mainly focused on Dada and Surrealism. Goodbye, Paul.
