This book presents a series of drawings entitled « 80 dessins de la France » (80 drawings of France), realized during the year 2000, for an installation exhibited notably at the 5th Lyon Biennale. Faire des cartes de France (To make maps of France) is a funny and bawdy play of words : « A friend visited me while I was drawing maps of France, in 2000. Smiling, he taught me that « making maps of France » was an expression to name the nocturnal emissions of the young king Louis XIII ! » (Annette Messager).
