Léo Ferré. Artist of Life, by Thierry Rollet

ISBN : 978-1-77076-734-8
Format : 88 pages, 6 x 9 inches
Interior Ink : Black & white
Binding : Perfect-bound Paperback

Presenting Léo Ferré allows the rediscovery of one of the greatest people of French song and poetry.

At least, this is what the general public will easily understand. The aficionados, and most of all, Leo’s « heirs » will surely know that it’s about rediscovering a true apostle of music.

Ferré was a musician at heart, especially as he also sang. But it is music that made his work multifaceted, be it poetic or literary.
