Latin and French on opposite pages. The main design element is the poet's attribute, the laurel wreath. Characteristic of Creuzevault's late work, the design depends less on gold fillets and concentrates more on the bold geometry and subtle color combinations of the calfskin inlays. The two covers, which are reflections of each other, echo the book's Cubist lithographs by Jacques Villon.
