Les espaces blancs du livre : usages et significations

Abstract : White is a very mysterious colour, which seems impenetrable. Its connotations are numerous and universal, even if the colour is very often associated with the ideas of blank and emptiness. In books, white is necessary for all the stages of the creation. When the author is writing the book, he uses the "white" of the blank page in order to start creating. It also helps the writer to organize its thoughts and make it text having sense. White then takes a huge importance concerning the layout stage, especially through its negative spaces. Finally, when the reader is reading, it is still here, flying between the letters so the reader can learn about the text, take notes and develop his own thought. Why having so many blank spaces? How could we interpret it?
