Oriental Leather


  • Description

Under a patchouli star

Memo Paris is happy to bring together two artists to unfold even more the imagination of Oriental Leather in an illustrated book:

The author: Thomas Clerc is a writer. After Maurice Sachs le désœuvré in 2005 with Éditions Allia, his four other books were published by Gallimard in the L’Arbalète collection. From short stories to constrained texts, he explores all forms of writing. Poeasy, a collection of 751 free verse poems, won the Paul Verlaine Prize in 2018. He is also a performance artist and columnist for the daily newspaper Libération.

The illustrator: Sophie de Bayser is a painter and illustrator who studied art history at the Sorbonne (Paris) and visual arts at ERG (Brussels). Her pastels, watercolours and vividly hued drawings are like snapshots of dreamy and enigmatic scenes. She is also an active contributor to Éditions LeMégot, which specialises in publications by artists.


This book is written in French and English
