Paul Eluard, Ralentir Travaux, 2003.

Ralentir Travaux is a Babel Fish translation of Eluard’s 1930 prose introduction
to a book of collaborative poems composed by Eluard, Andre Breton and Rene Char.
Eluard's text examines the role of the artist in the modern world.

Composed with QuarkXPress and printed on Kozo-shi digital paper

with an Epson Stylus 760 during December 2003.

The typeface is 3 point Skia. Because 3 point type will not display on a monitor,
there are no illustrations shown of page openings.
