Le Corbusier. Poésie sur Alger. Paris: Éditions Falaize, 1950

“The booklet of 1951, Poésie sur Alger, reemployed the principle of flat shapes of color that was tested in 1948, thus transforming his drawings of urban development by handling them like prints. The text itself puts a poetic accent on his reflections on the city, while the cover -handdrawn letters, plus a drawing inspired by Mallarmé- heralds the book’s ambitions by suggesting a fusion of art, architecture, and literature.”

Catherine de Smet. Le Corbusier, architect of books. Baden: Lars Müller, 2005 (p. 91)
