Looking for a book

Hi, I remember seeing an experimental art book, where all the content looks similar to this image.
I think its some kind of story, with black and while pictures and floating typography. (unesco or something like that ??)

Thought I might try here. thanks.


You're thinking of Massin's designs for Eugine Ionesco's plays.

I did a google search for you, here's a link to a page with spreads from La Cantatrice Chauve. http://www.typogabor.com/ionesco_massin/

Actually, what's pictured is one of the calligrammes of Guillaume Apollinaire.

Sorry, that made me pretty sure he was looking for something other than simply trying to identify his image.

The 1950s, days of Concrete Poetry where the structure was part of the literature--the precursor to Carson.
