Chris Marker and Jason Simon
Petite Planète Poster, 2006
Offset lithograph on heavy paper (stamped)
26 x 36 inches
$100






Chris Marker worked for the publishing house Editions du Seuil in the 1950s and, among other projects, he was responsible for Seuil's series of travel books, Petite Planète. Jason Simon, in consultation with Marker, collected every version of each book that Marker was directly involved with—either as editor, designer, cover photographer, author, or all of these roles together—for display at the cooperative gallery Orchard in 2006, as part of the exhibition Having Been Described in Words. After the show, Marker and Simon decided to produce a poster depicting the covers of the Petite Planète guides from 1954-64.

Simon has generously donated to Light Industry a rare edition of the poster, stamped on the verso with an image supplied by Marker: Guillaume-en-Egypte consulting his guide. Simon gave us a set of these once before, and they quickly sold out, but he recently found a small cache of additional stamped posters in his storage, and their sale will help us to cover the costs of translation and soft-titling for a show he's presenting early next year at Light Industry, featuring his personal prints of Agnès Varda's Les Enfants du musée, Alain Resnais's Le Mystére de l'atelier quinze, and Marker's Olympia 52.

Posters will ship in early December. Unsigned editions of the poster are available through Callicoon Fine Arts.
