15 (Pelieu, Claude). Sourdin, Bruno LES RUES REVEES DE CLAUDE PELIEU. (Cover title)
(Coutances, Manche, France: Imprimerie Claude Bellee, 1993). 1993). Fine Signed
(Coutances, Manche, France: Imprimerie Claude Bellee, 1993).. 1993).. Fine. - Small quarto [11-5/8 inches high by 8-1/4 inches wide], softcover bound in pictorial wraps. There is a very small, light stain to the top corner of the front wrap. [19] pages. Profusely illustrated with reproductions of collages & mail-art pieces by Claude Pelieu and Mary Beach. Near fine.

Poet-collagist Claude Pelieu was the only French artist to participate in the American "Beat" movement. A friend and associate of the Beats in Paris, he moved to the United States in 1963, where he lived and collaborated with his artist wife Mary Beach, daughter of Silvia Beach, in upstate New York. In 1967, he introduced the work of Allen Ginsberg, William Burroughs and others to the French, publishing them in a volume of Cahiers de Herne in translations by himself and Beach.

Bruno Sourdin, who wrote the text of this booklet, explains in his introduction that in 1989 there appeared in Quebec a little book signed by Claude Pelieu titled "La rue est un reve". Sourdin took this title for an exhibition of mail art which he and Jean-Jacques Rebours organized in France in 1993. The exhibition, which involved more than 200 artists from 31 countries, was conceived as "un hommage international" to Pelieu, one of the pioneers of mail art, and Sourdin published this booklet in conjunction with the exhibition as a mark of that homage.

Laid in are a translation into English of Sourdin's French text and a list of all the artists who participated in the mail-art exhibition. Also laid in is a handwritten card from Bruno Sourdin, signed "BS," and dated "93", to a recipient of this copy of the booklet.
