Written in French, the book records a collection of unusual objects, described below by the author.
Human activities are countless and varied. Some hijack planes, others public
funds or conversation. I prefer, for my part, to divert everyday objects from
their current use. It is less dangerous , more honest and infinitely more
entertaining! My objects, perfectly unusable, are the opposite of those gadgets
that our consumer society is so fond of. If asked, I would call them poetic,
hilarious, absurd, philosophical, ingenious, morbid , childish, profound,
derisory ... The reader would then be asked, according to his mood, his tastes
and his culture, to strike out unnecessary qualifiers. J. C.
