“Dans la lune” (In the moon) depicts a lunar
cycle with simple and elegant shapes. By combining 8 colored inks, Fanette
Mellier proposes a sensitive progress in the lunar month: When the moon is
waxing, it diffuses a subtle palette of white tones; when the moon is waning,
its dark side is revealed by a play of overprints. This transcript oscillates
between technical constraints and experimentation, science and sheer poetry.
These 30 moons are those of November, at the time when the book is issued. This
book was inspired by Mellier’s “Dans la lune” (In the moon) exhibit in 2010 at
the Cultural Center for Children of Tinqueux. It is published with the support
of France’s Ministry of Culture and Communication.
