Not unlike the multi-perspectival effect of Cubist paintings, a calligramme meshes image and text together into a self-reflexive object. Finding delight in the simultaneity of the medium, M. Apollinaire and Mme. AFFALÉ adopted the calligramme as their primary means of correspondence. A handful were salvaged upon Mme. AFFALÉ’s death in 1956, and have been made available for sale to the public.
