A 1947 work by Raymond Queneau, a French writer who is also known for the novel ``Zagie on the Underground,'' which was made into a film by Louis Malle, and the original poem for the chanson ``If You Imagine It'' sung by Juliette Greco.
This work is written with a unique concept of depicting a single ordinary event in 99 different writing styles, and while it is entertaining as a rhythmic play on words, it also allows you to easily manipulate impressions with just one word. It also makes you feel the irony of the word, and the expectation and hope for the power hidden in the words themselves.
The beautiful binding by Masayoshi Nakajo visually reflects the surreal atmosphere of the work through its irregular layout and use of fonts.
