René Crevel, Salvador Dalí · La Grande Marmelade

Hilarious and very touching letter written in pigeon French sent to Crevel from Dalí in 1935, but only discovered in 1978 in a suitcase of Crevel’s last effects bequested to the Bibliothèque Littéraire Jacques Doucet in Paris, some 43 years after Crevel’s tragic suicide. Handset in Aldo Novarese’s Garaldus italic and roman by Michael Caine.

Salvador Dalí, René Crevel · La Grande Marmelade

Lettre inédite, récemment retrouvée, dans une valise contenant les derniers papiers de René Crevel. Dalí réfléchit sérieusement sur les idées politiques de Crevel et sur les grandes questions de l’époque, le tout distillé dans un français baroque hispanisant.
