THE ART OF BOOKS & SMALL PRINT PUBLICATIONS

This is a blog on artist books, artist notebooks, magazines, poetry editions and other small print publications. Like FRIOUR is the Icelandic word for peace, BOKLIST are the Icelandic words for book (bok) and art (list). This is also a group blog in which those who are invited can upload their own books and/or comments.

Louise Tournay's EFFUSIONS

Publication Tim Gaze made on the automatic drawings of Louise Tournay, also known as Madame LOULOU, a prominent figure of the ART BRUT movement, what Americans call "Outsider art". Her sculptures in clay are in the Outsider art museum in Lausanne, Switzerland.
She's also present in the Museum of Spontaneaous Art in Brussels because I donated some of her pieces. Louise is a good friend and lives in Li├Ęge. In her automatic drawings you see the influence of other Belgian artists: Dotremont (Cobra founder) and Henri Michaux.
I introduced Tim to Louise and this booklet edition was the result. (GV)
Size: 15 X 21 cm ; Pages: 20
