Republique Francaise
Edition of 500 - 10£
full color offset - 52 pages – soft cover – perfect binding - 13cmsx20cms

Semiotic and visual deconstruction of the poster campaign of the French presidential elections of 2007. All images are fragments of the posters, used by the 12 candidates, all carefully constructed, more or less successfully, to better seduce and convince us. Segolene Royal has borrowed Barbara Kruger’s crude and catchy style, Sarkozy the candid and naïve blue sky and white clouds of Magritte. Interesting to see what happens when you separate the medium from the message.

Bought in 2008 by bookRoom collection and Bibliotheque Nationale de Paris
