As part of the fourth edition of his youth journey, Les Petits Spécimens (The Little Specimens 4 – Books are everything to me), Le Signe invites Éditions du livre to design a playful and never before seen journey.
Directed since 2013 by Alexandre Chaize, this independent publi-shing house publishes artist books for children with a geometric, minimal and colourful aesthetic. In these works, the narration arises from the dialogue between the image and the manipulation of the book object. Éditions du livre defends a clear principle: “The book format is the substance”.
This participatory exhibition literally invites you to jump into the books! The works have been redesigned as installations that unfold in Le Signe gallery. Throughout the journey, children and adults alike are invited to interact with the facilities and participate in mini-workshops around the books.
