Le Dieu des Hirondelles
Albin Michel, France, 2002
livre05 This information concerns the original French edition. A choice of poems and extracts from Contemplations et de La légende des siècles accompagnied by calligraphic work destined to assist the reader in penetrating to the heart of Victor Hugo’s personal religion, as the great man fights just as convincely against atheism as well as clerical religion. In the postface (9 pages) illustrated by reproductions of Victor Hugo’s own drawings, C. Mediavilla indicates how his calligraphy for this book is based on Hugo’s own handwriting (that uses two different styles, an english-style copperplate hand, as well as a more traditional french writing hand) and punctuated by arabesque decorations.
