We are extremely grateful to our editor Geetha Ganpathy Dore, for introducing us to the artist Isabelle Raviolo. Caesurae is overwhelmed by the gift of her paintings for the Special Issue, in January, 2017. There are four sets of paintings that Isabelle has shared with us. The third and the fourth sets are paintings as her homage to the poet Celan.

Her publishing house, La Dame de Onze Heures, set up in 2007, has brought out several volumes the first of which was a homage to Poe.
