In 1970, in the 5th number of the journal Change, subtitled "Le Dessin du Récit", Françoise Rojare attempted to graphically reinterpret one of the most significant books of literary modernity of the time: le Compact by Maurice Roche. Carried by a remarkably sharp gaze, Rojare aptly fed on Lettrist hypergraphics, typography, graphic scores and comics to produce 30 boards of dizzying avant-gardism, in no way diminished by the test of time. Some forty-six years after its realization, there is no doubt that the independent publication of this Mnemopolis will put in their place a number of conceited pseudo-innovators. (from publisher)
