La Naissance des nuages
In La Naissance des nuages, it is again the etchings (eighteen of them, in colour) that have inspired the text, which consists of nine short poems by Jacques Brault. Small in size (the book is 14 cm x 14 cm), each miniature is an open window onto immense space. . . . The colour is tender, fragile, mannered: bluish green, blue, mauve, green, yellow, rose. . . . The poems - which have a somewhat Japanese feel to them - tell of a moment in the passing day, of the fleetingness of the world and its things, of dreams, morning rain, the flight of the teal and the song of the lark, the veil of night, the unfathomable depth of the sky.
