Cotillon system is a system of six planets: Cherry, Apricot, Lemon, Apple, Bilberry and Sloe. These six planets are interdependent. They produce each something which needs another planet and need each of something produced by another planet. If one of them is lacking, all the system collapses. Until now, fortunately, no problem was noted in the functioning of these exchanges. Let us wish that it lasts till the end of time.

The Cotillon system is also and above all the book that tells the relations of these planets. A booklet the manufacturing of which offers some exceptional characteristics which make it a work of exception. Notably the paper preparation before the printing.

The unbowling of the cotillon's balls.
 

Piles of unbowled balls.
 

The ironing before printing.
 

The leaves ready to printing. A reserve of non unbowled balls in glass jar.

After handmade composition and letterpress printing.
 

Linocut cutting

Cutting circles of paper for the title page
with a punch (reserve in the glass).

 

Pasting the circles of paper on the title page.
 

Inserting.
 

Trimming with the little paper shears.
 

Beginning of assembling (3 sections).
 

After the drilling and before the oriental seam
in the specially made press.

 

It's finished...

 

... And if the poetry of a book was also outside the text?...

The Cotillon system was made in 50 copies. It weighs approximately 10 grams (0,35 oz) and is probably the lightest planetary system known this day...
