This review is from: Oulipo: A Primer of Potential Literature (French Literature) (Scholarly Series) (Paperback)
This book is a comprehensive collection of all things Ou-Li-Po. i would recomend it to anyone who wants to dig a little deeper into the OULIPO "philosophy" and techniques.
I originally bought this to aid me in my University presentation, and it helped a great deal in clarifying it's distinction from other more generalized areas of constrained writing (because all writing is constrained in someway, whether delibratly or no) my presentation and knowledge was only enhanced by the use of this book. some of it is playfull and some technical, but always informative and enlightening. the book is well-bound, the paper is top quality and there are to my knowlegde no typographic errors, which is in keeping with oulipo's very keen attention to detail.
