Poemes de la paix et de la guerre (1913-1916).
A rich collection of one of Appolinaire's poems and calligrams–visual poems whose typefaces and form work in tandem with the words to convey meaning. He became one of France's preeminent poets of the early 20th century, while also serving as an outspoken champion of the Cubist and Surrealist movements in his work as an art critic.
