        Petite histoire du soleil et de la pluie. Dessins et aquarelles de Jean-Jacques Lévêque et de Licia Bertini, en collaboration avec Gianni Bertini et Pierre-André Benoit sur le livre d'or du restaurant Camille Renault

      Puteaux, 1961. Dessin. Illus. by Jean-Jacques Lévêque - Licia Bertini. Très bon. Aucune reliure. Signé par l'illustrateur. [Circa 1961]. 7 pp. (6 compositions et une page de signatures) sur 5 ff de 32,5 x 25 cm : 2 dessins au feutre et à l'aquarelle signés l'un Licia, l'autre Licia Bertini, une composition au feutre et à l'aquarelle et deux aquarelles légendées au feutre signées Jean-Jacques Lévêque, un dessin au feutre monogramé M.D. (Monique Durand) et légendé par Jean-Jacques Lévêque. On trouve, au revers de la composition "Petite histoire du soleil et de la pluie", les signatures, du même stylo feutre, de l'éditeur Pierre-André Benoit, du peintre Gianni Bertini, de Monique Durand et celle, curieuse, de "M. Lévêque de Fos", qui est soit celle de la mère de J.-J. Lévêque, Marguerite Fos, qui tenait avec son fils la librairie et galerie "Le soleil dans la tête" qui publiait la revue "Sens plastique", soit celle, déguisée, de son fils, l'écrivain et critique d'art J.-J. Lévêque, qui ajoute ces mots à l'un de ses dessins : "le soir est défendu aux adolescents qui aiment la pluie". Belle et amusante collaboration entre ces convives. Pierre-André Benoit a publié plusieurs livres illustrés par Bertini ainsi que des textes de Jean-Jacques Lévêque. Bertini a illustré deux textes de Lévêque : "Douves" (PAB, 1959) et "Stèle pour Adam de la halle" (Editions du castel rose, 1962). Licia Bertini était l'épouse de Gianni Bertini. Nous ne sommes pas parvenus à identifier Monique Durand. Au revers de la composition signée Licia se trouve une honnête composition aux feutres de Franck Innocent dédicacée à Camille Renault. Signatures sans cohérence au revers de deux dessins et en tête d'un autre. Grand collectionneur et mécène, Camille Renault (1904-1984) tint le restaurant "Big Boy" à Puteaux de 1925 à 1967. Une boîte contenant papier, pinceaux et aquarelle y était à disposition pour les clients, artistes débutants ou confirmés, amis, voisins ou de passage..

'What is the nature of the search? you ask. Really it is very simple; at least for a fellow like me. So simple that it is often overlooked. The search is what anyone would undertake if he were not sunk in the everydayness of his own life.' Percy’s novel, his first, is a philosophical quest in which the question marks are worn lightly. Binx Bolling is a New Orleans investment broker who chafes over the difficulty of bringing life into high relief. Mere existence lacks flavor. Movies give him a glimpse of a higher possibility. That and sex with his succession of pretty secretaries. But he longs for a more enduring solution. You marvel at how lightly he addresses his displeasures—Percy’s book is like Sartre’s Nausea without the nausea. But Binx is still a man who always has his despair at the ready, and his story can shift toward the tragic with ease." (Time 100) Percy described it thus: the story of "a young man who had all the advantages of a cultivated old-line southern family: a feel for science and art, a liking for girls, sports cars, and the ordinary things of the culture, but who nevertheless feels himself quite alienated from both worlds, the old South and the new America." Winner of the National Book Award.
