la disparition

Since 2001 I collect translations of La Disparition. The most famous lipogrammatic (a text that excludes one or more letters of the alphabet) work by Georges Perec.

There aren't many of them as each work of translation is a re-writing of the book in itself. The translation to Spanish took a team of scholars and several years of work, published works exist about this translation process.

This collection grows very, very slowly (mainly through gifts). I have never read La Disparition nor any of its translations.
