what is lettrism?

Since the beginning of the 50’s we have published a great number of books and reviews which our restricted means prevented us to have them translated in other languages.

Nevertheless, as time passed, we succeded to publish a certain number of translations which from now on can constitute a good introduction to the Lettrist movement, the Avant-garde appaered just after the World War II.
You can have acces to the following titles in some libraries, or which can be acquired on lettrism.com

A lot of videos VHS and DVD with English sub-titles are also available and can be acquired on lettrism.com
