Orion (*signed*)

@ de Béthune, Christopher



Presentation by Origini Edizioni:

" ORION is the memory of a gone love story: an experience of light and shadow; white, black and shaded in the contours. The subjects and the words of the author are sublimated by time and are returned to us as a brief experience of overwhelming passion, pain and inspiration. The Orion’s belt as an inscrutable cold keeper of this memory. "

This book is sold out by the publisher; it is presented in an illustrated plastic sleeve that includes an A4 print on pink paper (80gr.)

The two poems by de Béthune included in French in the book are translated at the end in English.
