In 1950 the Letterist, Maurice Lemaitre, had published Riff-raff, a tenpage "metagraphy," which included a sequence that zoomed from the solar system through a drawing of the earth to maps of Europe, France, and Paris, and finally one of Saint Germain de Pres.
(37) Several pages from this metagraphy are illustrated in Jean-Paul Curtay's Letterism and Hypergraphics: The Unknown Avant-Garde, 1945-1985, Franklin Furnace, New York, 1985, unpaginated, but like halfway through.
