    Disque Pur is the first book of French author Lucas Lejeune, written during his artistic residency at Castel Coucou, a contemporary art center situated in Forbach, France.

    Disque Pur, described as the “intersection of science-fiction and Dante’s Divine Comedy”, relates the journey of a (computer) demon through the various layers of a hard drive disk. Each digital file becomes a new character or a new story, always a new surprise; the ensemble is a dadaist epopee, mixing literature, computer code, haïkus, concrete poetry and dozens of playful writing constraints.

    The book is entirely set in Fragen, whose shapes borrow from monospaced/typewriter typefaces as well as classic text ones, bridging the gap between the written and the more ASCII-like parts of the story.
