Bernar Venet has launched Poetic? Poétique ? Anthologie 1967-2017, the first poetry book by Venet that captures his entire range of poetry. "Written in French, English or with mathematical signs, the poems of Bernar Venet—lists, texts in prose and diagrams – serve to display information in a poetic fashion. In his literary creations, Bernar Venet brings a visual and musical dimension to the knowledge he portrays on paper."
The book can be purchased from Jean Boite Editions here.
