Roger Druet is a painter, calligrapher, writer and professor of literature.  Former student of the School of Applied Arts, then of Fine Arts (architecture), he then turned to typography, including type design with Deberny and Peignot. Then a long practice of graphic design and realization in publishing and advertising confirms his technique. From 1960 to 1987, he was in charge of the graphic art course at the École Supérieure des Arts Appliqués. After long years of graphic arts and crafts, the artist directs his pictorial research towards the incorporation of calligraphy, the schematization of the sign in a poetic and musical universe. The joy of writing is part of this approach and presents variations inspired by the alphabet. A beautiful book of poetic art, in parallel with an exhibition on the creations of Roger Druet which was held in January 2009 at the Musée de l'Imprimerie de Lyon. For Roger Druet, like the former calligraphers, writing is not only a technical activity, but a physical practice of enjoyment. In his compositions like Masson, Dotremont, Twombly, Tobey, he transports us into a poetic space, a universe of the sign which is that of art, where the virgin is "the infinitely possible".
