384 400 Km {is the distance between you and me} is a book of poetry written both in French and English.

The technical facts:

It has been printed in a limited run of 50 copies on Olin Ivory paper. They are numbered.
Dimensions are: 14 x 20 cm (approx. 5.5 x 7.8 inches), 62 pages.
The black soft-cover with flaps is illustrated by a score I composed using the distance between the Moon and the Earth as a constraint, it is for harp and voice and was inspired by medieval music.
The book is embellished with 8 lino-cuts which are derived from alchemy imagery. I carved and stamped them myself in each one of the books, so each copy is a little different from the other. The book is accompanied by a sheet which explains the origins of the gravures.

And in the most honest way, what can I say about this book… :

« This book is a about a lot of things, but the underlying idea is the position with which I approach the world most of the time: a view from far away, from outside sometimes. This sentiment to be so far away, this heart-breaking gap there is between two human being, between friends, kith and kin, lovers… […] All the poems are written both in English and French, even though my mother’s tongue is French. Because first all my friends and muses are either English speaking or understand English very well, and this book was written also for them, for those who were such an inspiration in my life, whether I know them personally or not. […]  I found something lovely in writing bilingual: each tongue gives me musicality and meaning that the other can’t. And I’d like to think that the reality of each poem sits in between, in a cloud were all languages are one.  »
