Franticham in Luxembourg

Exhibiting our books upon invitation from Jeanne Turnau in Born during an reading by authors Nico Helminger and Pol Greisch.

Visiting an exhibition of artists' books by Robert Brandy at the Centre National de Littérature. A big number of these books were printed and published by Francis between 1982 and 2009.

A visit to Brandy's studio .. Looking at an old coffer from the thirties which once belonged to my grand father and is now a part of Brandy's work on Bolitho Blane.

2 days in Zürich

On the way to Luxembourg a short stop in Zürich

Marché de la Poésie - Paris

from 18 to 21 june we were exhibiting our books on Place St Sulpice at the 28th edition of the famous poetry book fair. In the days Francis was publishing poetry in Luxembourg he used to attend to this fair from 1987 till 2001. This was a wonderfull occasion to see again old friends. Though the fair is mostly about poetry, the interest in our artists' books was great... we will go back next year!
