Oscar Wilde

In 2004 the French publishing house Libraire Elizabeth Brunet brought out a highly colourful edition of Rhymes Without Reason together with many of Mervyn Peake's nonsense poems.

Now, the same publishers working together with the translator Patrick Reumaux have combined to produce a very attractive new edition of poems in French by Oscar Wilde illustrated by Mervyn Peake.
