Dominique de Buman

Conseiller national fribourgeois, vice-président du PDC suisse et président de Bibliomedia.

"Expression of a human song, every language fall in step to the initial music. French language, harmonious and sweet, tastes the charms of the mouth and becomes wild when it gets carried away. When the paper is trying to capture it, she gently sleeps away or sinks in the darkness of the pencil. Did you believe to grasp it? Cruel disillusion! Grammar, syntax, punctuation or other accentuations get in the way of a riotous imagination. Ode to you which freely translates the mind without really revealing or betraying it..."
