Un cercle, un rond, un carré, ces formes géométriques élémentaires ont été choisies par le typographe, urbaniste et architecte Pierre Faucheux (1924-1999) pour signifier trois pratiques qui chacune, à leurs manières, questionnent l’espace. Il passait de l’une à l’autre avec passion cherchant à systématiser, comme il le formulait, une “écriture de l’espace” qu’explore cet ouvrage.

Le livre arpente ainsi les trajectoires diverses de Pierre Faucheux en tâchant de comprendre le va-et-vient qu’il opère entre écriture de l’espace et architecture du livre; entre lecture d’espaces et espaces de lecture.

Cette publication revient sur l’histoire du directeur artistique au Livre de Poche, collaborateur également d’un grand nombre d’éditeurs français des Trente Glorieuses (J.-J. Pauvert, Éditions Éric Losfeld, Le Seuil, Éditions Galilée...). L’ouvrage ouvre surtout à un pan moins connu de la carrière de Faucheux, celle de ses aventures avec les Surréalistes, de sa pratique du photo-collage et de ses expérimentations architecturales.

Lire les pratiques de l’espace de Pierre Faucheux se fait ici en partageant des voix, dont la sienne, et en observant des objets dont le souvenir tisse un ensemble riche et pluriel.
