Charleville encompasses Patti Smith’s works (texts, drawings, and photographs) revolving around the figure of Arthur Rimbaud. The book gathers documents and texts collected over a period of almost forty years.

Statues showcases photographs of sculptures taken by Patti Smith. These Polaroids made between 2002 and 2008 are accompanied by poems of the artist.

Cahier is a notebook inspired by those belonging to Patti Smith. The first pages are filled with Patti Smith’s handwriting and the rest is leaft to the reader’s personal use.
