Diagonals is an editorial project published by Le Grand Jeu in collaboration with the French artist L'Atlas. It is composed of 14 lithographs, folded in an accordion book printed by the renowned Atelier R.L.D. in a limited edition of 50 on 240 gr. Rivoli paper, each signed and numbered by Jules Dedet Granel aka L'Atlas.
Each lithography represents a step in the elaboration of a hand-drawn sketch. L'Atlas abandons the horizontal and vertical linearity of written letters, which has been a central tenet of his reflections during last decade. The artist explores a new formal space filled with diagonals, changing perspective in his devotion to calligraphy and to urban markings.
