L' tonnante diversit des possibilit's esth tiques offertes par le livre comme support mat riel de la fin du XIXe si cle aux exp rimentations les plus contemporaines, est au coeur de la r flexion propos e dans ce livre. La page, le feuillet et le livre, l' cran aussi, d bordent le cadre du codex et du livre reli (livre en ventail, leporello, recueil d'affiches, livre dress , livre sculpt , livre clat , livre num rique, etc.), par l'h t rog n it de leurs mati res, de leurs formes et de leurs formats. Ils deviennent des supports actifs dans le processus de conception et de r ception de l'oeuvre. Observer les processus de composition et de diffusion des oeuvres dans leurs singularit's mat rielles, tel est l'objet de ce livre. Cette recherche engage prendre la mesure du r le des diff rents acteurs dans la conception du livre, non plus seulement l' crivain et l'artiste mais aussi le typographe, le relieur, l' diteur ou le galeriste, chaque acteur pouvant lui-m me tre polyvalent. La porosit des fronti res entre les activit's, les m tiers, engendre naturellement la porosit entre les genres litt raires et artistiques.
The heart of the reflection in this book is the diversity of aesthetic possibilities of the book as material support, from the late nineteenth century to contemporary experiments. The page, the sheet and the book go well beyond the codex and the bound book, in the heterogeneity of their materials, forms and formats (fans, leporellos, poster collections, upright books, book sculptures, exploded books, electronic books, etc.): they are active supports in the design and reception process. This book observes the process of composition and distribution of works in their material singularities, including the role of the different stakeholders in the design of the book, not only the writer and the artist but also the typographer, bookbinder, publisher or gallery owner, each playing a multiplicity of roles. Such porous borders between roles and crafts generate porosity between the literary and artistic genres.
